Enrollment

It is the mission of the Quinault Division of Natural Resources Enrollment Department to protect, honor and adhere to the enrollment provisions

set forth by the Quinault Indian Nation Constitution and Bylaws. To protect all documentation provided for and by tribal members; to assist with integrity, accuracy and the utmost respect of confidentiality."

Mission

The Quinault Indian Nation Enrollment Department's purpose and goal is to process all Membership Applications, provide for the development and maintenance of the Quinault Indian Nation Tribal Membership Roll and to provide services to our Membership.

The duties of the Quinault Division of Natural Resources Enrollment Department include but are not limited to: Processing of all Applications for Membership, assist with gathering supporting documentation for applications, maintain all Tribal Members Enrollment files, complete Certificates of Indian Blood (CIBs), provide verification of enrollment status, provide membership and eligible voters lists as needed, and issue Quinault Indian Nation ID cards.

According to the US Department of the Interior, Tribal enrollment criteria are set forth in tribal constitutions, articles of incorporation or ordinances. The criterion varies from tribe to tribe, so uniform membership requirements do not exist. Two common requirements for membership are lineal decendency from someone named on the tribe's base roll or relationship to a tribal member who descended from someone named on the base roll. (A "base roll" is the original list of members as designated in a tribal constitution or other document specifying enrollment criteria.) Other conditions such as tribal blood quantum, tribal residency, or continued contact with the tribe are common.

“This is my land
From the time of the first Moon till the time of the last Sun
It was given to my People
Wha-neh Wha-neh, the great giver of life, made me out of the Earth of this land
He said, ‘You are the land, and the land is you’
I take well care of this land, for I am part of it....”
