In this case it appears that one of the criteria is
y-dna association (which is purportedly more accurate
that like a biogeo-print type test). Tho it did
mention establishing a "percentage" .. I didn't find a
bio-geo type test on their website.. maybe they
remarket that in their pitch to the tribe. As an
aside, I did notice the article also said that one had
to trace back to the DAWES rolls - not all tribes use
the DAWES as their tribal enrollment criteria (there
were many "rolls") - think they need a fact checker
for that article ....
Anyway I imagine one or two might get a shock when
they get their y-dna test.
