Registering as a Kickapoo
Q: I am a full Kickapoo Indian born in Texas and I have been trying to be a full member of the Kickapoo Indians.
Would it be possible for you to help me on information on how to get my children and I registered as a Kickapoo
Indian. I am registered as a Metis in Canada but I need to get registered in USA since I was born here not in Canada.
A: Thanks for writing, but we're really confused by your message. The Metis are
mixed-race Canadian indigenous people. If you are neither mixed-race nor Canadian,
why would you seek Metis status, and why would they give it to you?
I hope you have not been the victim of some scam. Did you have to pay for this 'status'?
If you are a full-blood Kickapoo Indian from Texas then simply contact the Kickapoo tribe
with the full names of your parents and they will confirm your tribal membership.
Here is their contact information:
