The Citizenship Board office is governed by a Citizenship Board consisting of five members. This office provides services to citizens of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation of Oklahoma or to potential citizens in giving direction or assisting in the lineage verification process of the Muscogee (Creek) people. The mission of this office is to verify the lineage of descendants of persons listed on the 1906 Dawes Roll. In doing so, research is involved in the whole aspect of attaining citizenship.

The criteria for Citizenship is that you must be Creek by Blood and trace back to a direct ancestor listed on the 1906 Dawes Roll by issuance of birth and/or death certificates.
Example: If your mother or father is enrolled as of 1981, then the Citizenship Office will review the documents that were submitted for your mother or father’s enrollment as well as the entire lineage to the original enrollee. If no one is enrolled between the applicant and the original enrollee then we require the death certificate of the original enrollee and birth certificates and/or death certificates with supporting documents of each person thereafter leading up to the applicant.
Initial documents that need to be submitted for the applicant are: the completed Citizenship application, the State Certified Full Image Birth Certificate, original social security card and if 18 years or older, please submit State Identification or Drivers License.
If any Birth or Death certificate has been delayed, amended or is computer generated, a supporting document is required; such as a social security abstract (Numident) listing parents, school record also listing parents or any legal documents listing parents and signed by a judge. (Ex: Probated Will)
Please be aware that lineal research, which is the responsibility of the applicant, may or may not be required for a Citizenship application; this is dependent on each applicant’s direct lineage to the original enrollee.
Citizenship applications may be obtained from this website, mail, email or picked up at the Citizenship Offices located in Okmulgee, OK and Jenks, OK.
