Actually...
Since there is no MINIMUM Blood Quantum that is moot, another point there is no longer enrollees in the Cherokee Nation the Rolls were closed in 1907, So a person is establishing a direct decendant to an "Enrollee". My Grandmother for instance was born Nov 1907 she is not an enrollee but was a citizen of the tribe because we go back a generation to her parents who were along with her older brother and sisters all Fullbloods.
As for Blood Quantum its only the BIA that requires a minimum for "Services" read Education in that word.

My wife works for Absentee Shawnee Clinic and they give services to anyone that has a Tribal Card (Federal), I dont know if that is true at all IHS but I have heard it so but I am sure there will be a few that dont...

I always find it fascinating that when people bring up Minimum blood Quantums they always bring up the Cherokee Nation as someone could be 1/100,000 or something like that. Not that I am angery about that it just seems so... By the Way there are 3 Federal Cherokee tribes each requiring different criteria for citizenship EBCI is 1/16th and UKB is 1/4.

Here are the tribes that currently do not require a Minimum Blood Quantum:

Alabama-Quassarte Tribal Town
Cherokee Nation
Chickasaw Nation
Choctaw Nation
Citizen Potawatomi Nation
Delaware Tribe of Indians
Eastern Shawnee Tribe
Mashantucket Pequot Tribe of Connecticut
Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe of Massachusetts
Miami Tribe of Oklahoma
Modoc Tribe
Muscogee Creek Nation
Osage Nation
Ottawa Tribe of Oklahoma
Peoria Tribe of Indians
Quapaw Tribe of Oklahoma
Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Michigan
Seminole Nation
Seneca-Cayuga Tribe of Oklahoma
Shawnee Tribe
Thlopthlocco Tribal Town
Tonkawa Tribe
Wyandotte Nation
