Ey everyone. So I have a lot if Cherokee blood but I not anyone I know is a card carrying member. Does anyone know how it is possible that one would prove that they have Cherokee blood and become inducted into the tribe?

Thanks!

To become a member of the Cherokee nation, you have to be able to show that a direct ancestor was listed on the Dawes Roll. http://www.cherokee.org/Services/TribalCitizenship.aspx

And you have to pay to see the roll?:(
That kinda blows but you gotta do what you gotta do I guess.

There are links to free sites that let you search the Roll for your ancestor's name(s) here: http://www.cherokee.org/Services/Tribal ... ation.aspx
