We have tried to get Whitney registered with this tribe but it is vitually impossible. Her father is 7/8 Banock Shoshone and was born on the reservation at Fort Hall. We have been told that Whitney needs to be 1/2 Bannock Shoshone or should be born on the Fort Hall Reservation. She is neither. Her father was 8/8 Shoshone and she wasn't born on the reservation. His father was born in Mexico. We were told years ago it was easier but now everyone wants to be Indian because they have so many government advantages like college tuition and stuff. I know her father gets yearly checks from the tribe but he is not much help with her. We had a DNA done and he admits he is her father and we have done all the genealogy, but we have worked on it for about 15 years. If you ever find out, please let me know. Her Grama, Sandra Gilbert.
