How do I trace my Indian Ancestry?
When people believe they may be of American Indian ancestry, they immediately write or telephone the nearest Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) office or the OIAC for information. That is not the best place to start. Research must be done in order to file for any tribal enrollment. If an individual does not wish to conduct their own research, researchers are available for a fee. After you have completed your genealogical research, documented your ancestry, and determined the tribe with which your ancestor was affiliated, you are ready to contact the tribe directly to obtain the criteria for membership. Lists of the 37 Oklahoma Tribes are listed at www.ok.gov/oiac/ or you can refer to www.doi.gov/ for more information.
