Quick note – INFR premieres tonight (April 4th) on Dish398 at 730 pm cst and again tomorrow night at 1130 cst. It will air again the week of May 2nd. Sorry for the short notice but they actually moved the premiere date up a week because of live horse racing, which I guess is better than postponing.

NOTICE
INFR CONTESTANT MEMBERSHIP

Posted: 02-03-2017

IN SEPTEMBER OF 2016, THE INFR POSTED NOTICE THAT ONLY INDIAN STATUS CARDS AND ENROLLMENT CARDS WOULD BE ACCEPTED FOR A CONTESTANT MEMBERSHIP. APPLICANTS NOT MEETING THIS REQUIRMENT WOULD HAVE BEEN REQUIRED TO PRODUCE SOME OTHER FORM OF PROOF OF INDIAN BLOOD/DESCENDENCY. THIS DECISION RESULTED FROM THE CONCERNS AND COMPLAINTS OF CONTESTANTS AND REGIONS THAT INDIAN BLOOD AND HERITAGE OF SOME CONTESTANTS WAS QUESTIONABLE.

THE ABOVE IS NOW ON HOLD UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE AND IN ITS STEAD, RULES B1.2.1 AND B1.3.1 WILL BE ENFORCED.

THESE RULES ARE SUMMARIZED AS FOLLOWS: RULE B1.2.1 RESERVES THE INFR THE RIGHT TO REQUEST FOR FURTHER PROOF OF INDIAN BLOOD/DESCENDENCY FROM AN APPLICANT WHERE INDIAN DESCENDENCY REMAINS IN QUESTION AND CAN REFUSE MEMBERSHIP WHERE STATUS CONTINUES TO BE QUESTIONABLE. RULE B1.3.1 STILL ALLOWS THE INFR, IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION, TO REFUSE MEMBERSHIP TO ANYONE.

THESE SECTIONS WILL NOW BE STRICTLY ENFORCED.
