Membership

MEMBERSHIP IN THE PATAWOMECK TRIBE

We welcome all people of legally documentable Patawomeck Indian lineage who are dedicated to reviving and keeping alive the heritage of our ancestors to become active members of the Patawomeck Tribe if they meet the requirements listed below.

In order to qualify for tribal membership, your Patawomeck family lineage must be documented. This is a step you must complete, to the best of your abilities, before requesting membership. The Tribe does not have the time or resources to complete the genealogy for every applicant. We do have access to various vital records of local families, (i.e. Newton, Monteith, Green, Sullivan, etc...) and may be able to fill in gaps during the application review process but the burden of genealogical proof lies with you, the applicant.  For additional genealogical resources, click here.

  • Your family must be listed on the 1860 census of the White Oak area of Stafford County or closely surrounding area (such as the city of Fredericksburg or Pasapatanzy in King George
  • Your family must have interacted with the White Oak or closely surrounding area in the 20th century.
