My name is Douglas Plaunt. I write to you today to help discuss an issue with the Enrollment Code. My father Douglas Plaunt was recently enrolled in the Pokagon Band. As a young child, he was adopted out to a non-Pokagon family and was not made aware of his ancestry until recently. Thankfully, Section (4)(B) of the Enrollment Code allowed him to enroll as he fell into the exception of being "legally adopted by a non-Pokagon family". Unfortunately, the language of the statute does not allow myself or my sister Tara Plaunt to be enrolled as we are past our 21st birthdays despite not learning of our ancestry until recently. Aside from the 21 year old age restriction, we are eligible for membership. In fact, my children Mylo Plaunt and Marlie Plaunt, whose blood quantum comes solely from my family, is an enrolled member of the Tribe. Along with my half brother Taylor, he was also accepted. My sister and I have been denied twice. Hiring a lawyer in our last chance of getting into the tribe and we have a god chance of being accpeted, so with your help we hope to accoplpish this goal. Thank you all
