Membership Eligibility/Criteria

To be eligible for enrollment in the Aleut Community of St. Paul Island Tribe, applicants must meet the criteria as outlined in the Tribe’s Membership and Enrollment ordinance (Aleut Tribal Code Title 1, Chapter 1.45).​

Application for Enrollment

Applicants must submit documentation of family lineage as descendants of Aleut Community of St. Paul Island base roll members. If an application is being made to be adopted as a new member into the Tribe, documentation of Alaska Native or Native American descent and St. Paul Island residency is required. It is the applicant’s responsibility to provide evidence of eligibility in the Aleut Community of St. Paul Island Tribe. In general, acceptable documentation demonstrating proof of eligibility includes certified copies of birth certificates, baptismal records, paternity affidavits, adoption records, and affidavits from family members. Certified copies of birth certificates are the preferable proof, however, other documents listed may be used depending on individual circumstances. If there is a question of eligibility, please contact Tribal Enrollment before applying. Completed applications are forwarded to the St. Paul Tribal Council for their approval or disapproval at regular meetings of the Tribal Council held quarterly. Applicants or their representatives are notified in writing of the Tribal Council’s decision.​
