                                   How To Obtain a CDIB

1. Genealogical Work: Trace your family tree back to an ancestor on the rolls (original tribal
   membership listings), record the tribe, enrollment number, and census number if available.

2. Once you have located your ancestor, you need to get as much information about them and the
   family line as possible. This includes getting their state certified birth and death certificates,
   as well as certificates for every person in between to prove your lineage.

3. When you believe you’ve got enough information to verify your claim, you need to fill out an
   application available from your tribe or region’s Bureau of Indian Affairs office. A listing of
   the regional offices is available at: www.doi.gov/bia/docs/TLD-Final.pdf


                                      Enrolling in Your Tribe
1. After completing the first two steps from above, you will need to contact the tribe of your
   ancestor directly. If you are having problems obtaining records, go ahead and contact the
   tribe, they may be able to help.
2. Each tribe has slightly different requirements for enrollment. I have listed the websites for the
   main tribes of Indiana, as well as the sites listing their enrollment details.

                                   Federally Recognized Tribes
Sometimes scholarships require enrollment in a federally recognized tribe. How do you know if
your tribe is federally recognized? Easy, check the latest Federal Register which can be found at
http://edocket.access.gpo.gov/2008/pdf/E8-6968.pdf

The only federally recognized tribe in Indiana is the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi. If you are
unsure whether your tribe is or not, check the register!
