Indian Territory, The Twin Territories ~ OK/ITGenWeb —
"More and more people from all over the United States are researching to prove their ancestor was an Indian... Whatever the reasons,
there are certain things people should know before they begin, such as the fact that possession of Indian blood does not, of itself,
entitle an individual to rights or benefits provided by the Federal Government. The payments made to persons of Indian descent
represent their shares of the assets of the tribe with which they are affiliated. Consequently, to be eligible to share in the tribal
assets, a person must be a member of a tribe at the time its assets are being distributed." - quote from the website.
