NOTICE
INFR CONTESTANT MEMBERSHIP

Posted: 09-27-16

THIS PAST RODEO YEAR (2016), THE INFR SAW AN INCREASE IN APPLICATIONS FROM PERSONS WHOSE INDIAN HERITAGE IS IN QUESTION.  REGIONS OF THE INFR HAVE EXPRESSED THIS CONCERN, SO HAVE MEMBERS, AND THE INFR ITSELF HAS ALSO HAD CONCERNS. 
THE INFR IS OBLIGATED TO ITS INDIAN MEMBERS AND IT WILL CONTINUE TO MEET THIS OBJECTIVE BY PROTECTING ITS EXCLUSIVITY OF MEMBERSHIP.

THEREFORE AND EFFECTIVE COMMENCEMENT OF RODEO SEASON 2017, THE INFR WILL ONLY ACCEPT PROOF OF TRIBE ENROLLMENT OR INDIAN STATUS CARDS FOR AN INFR CONTESTANT MEMBERSHIP.

ALL APPLICANTS UNABLE TO MEET THIS REQUIREMENT WILL BE PUT ON HOLD UNTIL THE INFR PUTS INTO PLACE THE STANDARD OF PROOF THAT WILL BE REQUIRED TO QUALIFY FOR AN INFR MEMBERSHIP.                    

THIS POLICY AND A CLEARER DEFINITION OF WHO QUALIFIES FOR MEMBERSHIP WILL BE PUT IN PLACE BEFORE THE 2017 RODEO SEASON.

THE INFR BYLAW AND RULES WILL ALSO BE AMENDED ACCORDINGLY.
