Last week we announced that the UHN enrollment rolls would be closing effective October 1, 2014. Today I want to clarify that the closing is conditional. Applications for children ages 4 and under of enrolled parents will still be accepted. The closing is not an attempt to punish anyone; it is an attempt to ensure large growth of the tribal roll is not used as a barrier in processing our federal recognition petition.
With this conditional closure approaching, I want to encourage anyone who has failed to complete enrollment applications on themselves or their children to do so by September 30, 2014 to ensure you are not affected by the changes.
Here is a Public Notice providing additional clarification and guidance regarding the Tribal Council decision.
