My family tree is on Ancestry.com and we can prove the documents that go back to the Choctaw nation, and listed in the Dawes records. I know need to know who I need to show this proof to to get acknowledgement that I am Choctaw. I basically want this for spiritual reasons and to embrace my heritage.

I do not know for sure , But I think you would need to call the Choctaw head quarters in Oklahoma , They can tell you if you need hard copies or what , Good luck , I am glad for you ,
