Any individual who is a descendant of the federal Eastern Creek base roll used for the 1950 Indian Land Claims Commission is eligible for citizenship in the Southeastern Mvskoke Nation. No person who is an enrolled citizen of another state or federally recognized Native American Tribe is eligible for citizenship in the Nation. No decree of any Court purporting to determine citizenship in the Nation, paternity, or degree of Indian blood shall be recognized as a determination of citizenship in the Southeastern Mvskoke Nation. The Tribal Council reserves the right to adopt into the Tribe adoptive children, grandchildren, or siblings of Tribal members and other persons·who, using similar documentation, are affirmatively determined to be of Mvskoke Creek heritage but whose ancestors were not captured by the Bureau of Indian Affairs agents in the aforementioned base roll, upon the signed and supported recommendation of the Citizenship Department, and the unanimous vote of the Tribal Council.
