Refuting a Claim

I am quoting Harper Rose "Also, I have to PAY to be on the books. A) We don't have that kind of money, and B) Why should I pay for something that is my birthright? I don't pay money to Scotland to claim my Scottish lineage, why does the tribe require it?"
* I am a Mohegan Tribal member. We are a federally Recognized Tribal Nation. In order to be an enrolled Tribal member we have strict lineage guidelines. No one pays to be on any books. I think she may be referring to that there was a time when we were State Recognized and we would pass the hat and a 5.00 membership fee. That 5.00$ membership fee was for Tribal members.That covered our expenses such as paperwork etc. No one pays to be on books. No one.
