(1) An "Indian Tribe, Band, or Group" is a population of Indian people related to one another by blood through their Indian ancestry, tracing their heritage to an Indian tribe, band, or group indigenous to Alabama. No splinter groups, political factions, communities or groups of any character which separate from the main body of a tribe, band, or group currently recognized by the State of Alabama may be considered for recognition by the Commission. A state recognized Indian tribe, band, or group may apply to the Commission on behalf of its members for assistance and information regarding services and benefits to Indians.
(2) An "Indian Association" is an organization of Indian people made up of members of state or federally recognized Indian tribes, bands or groups who have joined together to form such association, the purposes of which are documented by the association's bylaws or constitution. Ninety percent of the association's membership must be Indian. Membership in an Indian association does not of itself certify an individual as Indian. A state recognized Indian association may apply to the commission on behalf of its Indian members for assistance and information regarding services and benefits to Indians.
