Attention New Applicants
Tribal Council modified the Enrollment Moratorium
On August 31, 2016: Council voted to move forward with a resolution that lifts the moratorium for applicants with 1/8 degree of Indian blood and born to an enrolled Squaxin Tribal member. This does not include those relinquishing from another tribe at this point.
Prior to this change the moratorium only allowed those born to a current tribal member within the first year of birth.
There will be DNA Testing on all new applicants.
The Tribe will assume the cost of the DNA test, provided the applicant and his/her family members are tested at a laboratory scheduled by Tribal Enrollment. If the applicant becomes enrolled, the Tribe will deduct $36.75 per test from the applicant’s first per capita payment. Testing can also be done in the Enrollment Office for your convenience.
Please contact the Enrollment Office with any questions.
