Blood quantum...hum...controversial topic. Zotigh is right in regards to individiual tribes setting their own standards, ours is supposedly 1/4, however, we are a matilineal society, so if your mother, mother's mother, etc... is enrolled , you are eligible for enrollment. The problem is that it has 'stretched' our blood lines so thin now to somewhere in 1/75 (?)! brackets...it then creates controversy within the rez community regarding services...etc.....know what I mean? I don't know... it's such a wide controversial topic... it could probably go on and on.
