A wise tribal government is always evaluating its enrollment policies, weighing tradition against the future of the tribe and the well-being of all of Indian Country. Join Falmouth at the Indian Country Enrollment Summit where you'll learn from tribal enrollment expert Terry Rainey*, who has advised and guided countless tribal governments in evaluating current enrollment policies, developing new policies and introducing enrollment revisions to the tribal community.
In this innovative program we’ll cover the basics of the laws and court decisions that impact enrollment. Then, we’ll lead you in discussions and exercises that will help you realize the strengths — and weaknesses — of your tribe’s current enrollment practices. We’ll bring you the latest information on federal policies and attitudes toward the rights and privileges of tribal members, the current legal challenges to disenrollment and the long-term impact of using blood quantum as a means for determining membership.
Councils and enrollment boards should take advantage of this opportunity to ensure they have a basic grasp of enrollment law and an understanding of the more complex issues that surround this important sovereign tribal right. Register today!
