Unbridled Sovereignty, Assimilation - Cultural Tradition = DISENROLLMENT

Excellent piece by Johnnie Jae on how disenrollment has affected those of the Saginaw Chippewa nation.  It can be extrapolated to fit most tribes.

She writes that:
Disenrollment "is an extremely disgraceful practices that threatens each one of us, regardless of tribal affiliation, blood quantum and lineage. It decimates our numbers and reinforces the government's stance that we can not only be bred out of existence, but we can be amended out of existence."
"If they were able to prove and meet the criteria for enrollment and the tribe exercised their sovereign right to accept them as members, there is absolutely NO justification for stripping them of their citizenship and jeopardizing the future of a tribal nation due to greed and corruption."
