Buhl (Enrollment) Department
The Enrollment committee meets quarterly to accommodate the growing need for both processing and ordinance revision to comply with our recent Constitutional amendments. The Enrollment committee is comprised of a group of Tribal members appointed by Tribal Council. The committee is assisted by one tribal member employee, the Enrollment Coordinator, who is available to assist interested enrollees by appointment.
