Enroll to the Siletz Tribe
Applications must be submitted with at minimum an original state issued birth certificate naming the tribal parent on the birth certificate.
Blood Quantum Calculator
To be considered for membership of the Siletz Tribe, they must possesses 1/16 or more degree Siletz blood quantum.
Change Name on Tribal Roll
Even if you have changed your name in Tribal Court or with the Siletz Community Health Clinic, there is a separate process for changing your name on the Tribal Roll. At minimum you must submit the legal document (marriage certificate, divorce decree, adoption record, etc.) that legally changed your name and a clear color copy of your social security card with your updated name listed on the Social Security Card. If there is a clerical error in your name, contact the Enrollment staff and a request to make the correction will be submitted.
Blood Quantum Correction
Each adult must submit a request to have their blood quantum corrected as a result from a change in an ancestor’s blood quantum. To eliminate a delay, you should provide a copy of your original state issued birth certificate. At this time there is not a “cascading change” where an ancestor’s change is reflected in all descendants of that one person.
Request for Relinquishment of Siletz Membership
The Siletz Tribe does not allow for dual enrollment even if another tribe you may be eligible for does. If you wish to enroll with another Tribe, you must relinquish your membership with the Siletz Tribe first.
