Relinquishment Request

Enrolled Oneida tribal members may voluntarily relinquish their membership from the Oneida Tribe through the following method:

1) Adults may relinquishment by submitting a notarized relinquishment form.

2) Relinquishment of children may only be considered for purposes of enrollment into another federally recognized Tribe or Band.

Children may only be relinquished at the request of the Oneida parent who has submitted a notarized relinquishment form on the child's behalf.

The Oneida Enrollment Department will verify that an application for enrollment was submitted on the child's behalf with another Tribe.

The Oneida Trust/Enrollment Committee will review requests for relinquishment at their regular monthly meeting which is held on the first Tuesday of each month.

Upon approval by the Trust/Enrollment Committee, the requests are submitted to the Oneida Business Committee for final approval.

NOTE: Re-enrollment of an individual may be considered through the current enrollment process.

DUAL ENROLLMENT IS HEREBY SPECIFICALLY PROHIBITED BY THE ONEIDA TRIBE OF INDIANS OF WISCONSIN.
