How to Find Out if You Are Choctaw Indian

The Choctaws are a tribe of Native Americans originally from the United States' southeastern region, such as Alabama, Louisiana, Florida and Mississippi. In the modern day, however, the majority of Choctaw peoples and descendants reside in Oklahoma as a result of forced relocation during the 1800s. If you think that you may have Choctaw blood, take the appropriate actions in order to find out for certain.

Things you need

Information about your family and ancestorsComputerInternet connection

Instructions

1 Gather the necessary information. If you think that you may be Choctaw, compile all of the details of your Native American relatives, including their full names, the names of their children, wives and husbands. Also figure out how old they were during between the years of 1898 and 1906, which was a Choctaw enrolment era. Look for as much proof as possible, from marriage records to birth certificates.

2 Access a final rolls index. The Access Genealogy website offers roll number information for Native Americans. The site provides information for Native Americans from many different tribes, include Choctaw, Cherokee and Pawnee. Enter the first and last names of your ancestor and hit the "Search" button. If your ancestor was indeed Choctaw, you will be able to track down his exact tribe with other details such as blood degree.

3 Contact the Choctaw Nation directly at its Choctawnation website. The organisation may be able to assist you in uncovering your roots as a Choctaw, if they are out there. Retrieve as much information as possible about your ancestors and relatives, including full names, family members and dates of birth.

4 Determine where your family members or ancestors resided. If you having a tough time finding records of your relative's status as a Choctaw, find out if he perhaps lived on a reservation. Choctaws on reservations may be harder to track down due to not having been taxed. If you have a rough idea of where your ancestors lived, try to track down reservations in that area.

5 Get a certificate degree of Indian blood card for final confirmation. Card applications are available on the Choctaw Nation official website. To confirm your Native American heritage, fill and send out a form with everything from the roll numbers of your grandparents to your phone number. Include your birth certification with your application and send it to Tribal Membership in Durant, Oklahoma.
