The Membership Department replaces status cards and accept applications to transfer from one band to another.


Status cards will be updated starting October 1, 2020

Effective October 1, 2020, OKIB will be updating status cards.

Packages will be available for pick up at the Health Building. Each package will contain a check list and all forms required. Once requirements are met, cards will be made out twice a week. Membership Coordinator Veronica Wilson will call you to meet her downstairs at the Health Building to finalize the card.

Thank you for your patience as we work through this process.
