Hi, I’m currently an enrolled member with Mvskoke (Creek) Nation. My mother’s father was enrolled with the Absentee Shawnee tribe, my mother, siblings and myself were able to apply for descendant status with the Absentee Shawnee tribe. I received a letter stating I am not an enrolled member but a descendant of the Absentee Shawnees. With that being said my questions are: Does Mississippi Choctaws offer that same option? Can an individual file for a descendant status? If so, what information is needed to do so? I appreciate your help
