Tribal Nation Parentage
Native Americans enjoy tribal sovereignty which gives them the ability to create their own laws and ways of governance according to their individual cultures and priorities. No tribe is the same and there are over 500 federally recognized tribal governments in the Untied States. With so many differences in structure, lifestyles, and tribal law it can be difficult to find the right parentage information you need
Many tribes depend on their child support agencies to help their citizens who need parentage established. If you are a parent who is a member of a federally recognized tribe, use the map below to find your tribe’s parentage resources.
This map links to online parentage documents, laws, codes, and contact information so you can get started. If your tribe is not listed, contact your local county child support agency for more information.
