No. The CIRI Foundation does not require your CIRI Shareholder documents or ID Cards. We will, however, require documents linking you to your Original Enrollee* such as birth certificates, marriage licenses, death certificates, adoption records, etc. to show a direct line from your Original Enrollee to you.

A CIRI Descendant ID card is helpful to have and can be used to prove your eligibility for CITC’s Tribal Higher Education Scholarship administered by The CIRI Foundation.

*Original Enrollee is an individual whom acquired shares from Cook Inlet Region, Inc. (CIRI) during the 1971 Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act. If you are unsure about your CIRI shareholder status, contact the CIRI Shareholder Relations Department at (800) 764-2474.
