Frequently Asked Questions:
  • Why do our CDIB Cards expire?
                        This helps us keep members information up to date and accurate. Expiration dates also helps safeguard members, if cards are lost or stolen they cannot be used indefinitely. Cards expire four years after the issued date; expiration dates are located on the bottom right hand side of your CDIB card.
  • Why do we have to show proof of identity to request a new CDIB card?
                        By requiring proof of identification this ensures we are issuing cards to the correct person. Identity theft is rampant and this protects not only the Tribe but Tribal Membership as well.
  • Why do the Roll Numbers seem “messed up”?
                   The 1976 Base roll was done alphabetically. This is why an older member may have a higher roll number than a younger member. Once this base roll was established roll numbers began to be given in the order in which the application is received.
  • Why are both parents required to sign the enrollment application for a minor?
                        The requirement is set forth in the Membership Ordinance. Exemptions are made for individuals who can provide legal documentation of full custody or if the minor is in ICW/DHS custody.
  • How do I update or renew my CDIB card if I am unable to come into the office?
                        We have a form that can be printed off our website, emailed, or mailed to the requestor. This is a short form that must be signed in the presence of a notary and returned along with a copy of the requestor or legal guardian’s state ID or driver’s license. The form can be returned via mail or email.
  • How do I submit an Enrollment Application if I am unable to come into the office?
                        The Enrollment Application is on our website; staff can also mail or email the application. The Enrollment Application MUST be returned via mail, UPS, or Fed Ex as the applicant’s original state issued birth certificate is required to be submitted. There are four (4) forms within the application that must be notarized prior to submission. The front page outlines required documents; staff can also answer any questions you may have.
