The Blackfeet Tribe has strict enrollment guidelines that must be met to become an enrolled member. Membership into the tribe is based on our constitution and by-laws as well as our procedures that govern our enrollment Ordinance 14.
When applying for enrollment into the Blackfeet Tribe an application is required with an original birth certificate. Applications can be picked up at the Enrollment Department or mailed to you upon request. November 15th of each year is the deadline for new applicants attempting to make eligibility for the annual December Per Capita payment.
Ineligible applicants will be notified by mail with the return of all original documents.
If the applicant qualifies as a descendant of the tribe, a descendant form will be mailed to you automatically. The descendant form only verifies that you have a direct relationship to an enrolled Blackfeet tribal member, such as your parents, grandparents, and so on.
Please don't hesitate to contact the Enrollment Office if you have any questions. Thank You.
