48 Stat. 965.
|Chap. 272||Participation in tribal payments.|
|Sec. 2||Determination of blood degree.|
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That, regardless of the Act of June 15, 1934 (48 Stat. L. 965), upon receipt of proper birth certificates the names of unenrolled living Menominee Indian children born prior to that date of an enrolled parent or parents residing on the reservation at the time of their birth, and the names of children born thereafter otherwise qualified under section 4 of said Act but irrespective of the derivation of their Menominee blood, shall be automatically placed upon the official roll approved on December 27, 1935; and such
children shall be entitled to participate in any tribal payments made between the time of their birth and enrollment.
The Secretary of the Interior is hereby authorized and directed on or before June 30, 1941, to investigate and determine the correct degree of Menominee Indian blood of every person whose name appears on the basic official roll as originally approved December 27, 1935. The determination made by the Secretary of the Interior shall be final and conclusive for enrollment purposes under the Act of June 15, 1934, as modified herein, and any changes necessary to conform to such determination shall be made in the appropriate column of said roll.
Approved, July 14, 1939.
