DNA: Eastern Band Cherokees new enrollment ordinance


Looks like the trend to use DNA as evidence is now an accepted enrollment ordinance, following a favorable 12-0 vote earlier this month by the Tribal Council of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, according to a Smokey Mountain News (North Carolina) article by Giles Morris.

Read Tribe moves to implement DNA testing for new applicants to Cherokee rolls to discover what this means for existing members of the tribe.

Happy family tree climbing!
