Wolfchild invited all direct lineal descendants to enroll into Lower Sioux. Does this mean if you're currently enrolled elsewhere, you can relinquish your membership where you're currently enrolled & then re-enroll into Lower Sioux providing you have substantial proof of your lineal descendancy? What makes this funny is most would rather be enrolled in Prior Lake as it's got the best benefits. I have a few ways I look at this. Congress aside. Prior Lake should have the most enrolled members, simply because it can support a larger community, opposed to the Lower Sioux rural community. Second, this statement leads right back to all receiving equal amounts of benefits, provided by all three communities. Third, If you wish you can be enrolled in the Minnesota Mdewakanton Dakota Oyate. & their consitution states that you can enroll in the MMDO after you relinquish your enrollment in any current tribe you're enrolled in. What I don't understand is why would anyone enroll into the MMDO, being that it's not a federally recognized community/tribe.? I believe, that what's happening here is, Prior Lake will lose it's federal recognition status. & will simply be replaced by the MMDO. Years after it's taken to Congress. & this will be the decision. Hahahaha! Joking! However, I can't help but think that if Congress understands the situation, that this would be a near common sense decision. & Hey, if you all don't like my comments or remarks. Let me know, I will stop posting immediately at your request.
