The Stockbridge-Munsee Constitution and Enrollment Ordinances govern the Stockbridge-Munsee Enrollment Office. The requirement for enrollment is proof of 1/4 blood or more Stockbridge-Munsee blood. Any person that wishes to apply for enrollment must fill out an application, a family tree, and supply a state certified birth certificate to our office. The Enrollment office asks that you do as much research on your own before contacting our office with any questions.
The staff reviews the application and a complete family tree is prepared using Tribal Rolls and documents on file in the Enrollment Office. The application is then forwarded to the Membership Committee for review and recommendations.
The Membership Committee is responsible for reviewing and making a recommendation on the enrollment application. The Membership Committee meets on the 4th Thursday of each month.
The Membership Committee then forwards the application to the Tribal Council for consideration and action. The Stockbridge-Munsee Tribal Council makes the final decision in all enrollment cases.
The Enrollment Office completes processing of the enrollment application in accordance with approved policies and procedures.
The Enrollment Office has the responsibility of keeping all Enrollment records. We will assist Tribal member's research their family trees if requested.
