1934 Dakota Base Rolls

Note: the validity of legitimate 1934 B.I.A. Enrollments as the Mdewakanton Base Rolls is currently (September 2004) under litigation.

These rolls are described in Article III, Sec. 1 of the Lower Sioux Indian Community Constitution and Prairie Island Constitution as the “official census roll of the Minnesota Mdewakanton Sioux Indians as of April 1, 1934," and along with the January 1, 1935 "official supplement" are the "base rolls" upon which a person or his/her ancestors must be listed in order to be eligible for federally-recognized tribal enrollment.
