Tribal rolls are currently closed for new enrollments as we evaluate our existing processes and work toward making improvements. Tribal enrollment is a key issue throughout Indian Country and concepts such as sovereignty, blood quantum, authenticity and legitimacy, often play a large role in any discussion of this subject matter.
We are excited to have Robert A. Williams, Jr., the Regents Professor of Law and Faculty Co-Chair of the University of Arizona Indigenous Peoples Law and Policy Program, join us at the 2018 Lumbee Nation Economic Summit to discuss tribal enrollment reform. Professor Williams, a Lumbee who received his Doctorate from Harvard Law School, is well-versed in navigating tribal law and the often tumultuous waters that surround tribal enrollment reform. Don't miss his presentation at this year's Summit on May 23, 2018.
