In 2006, Tribal Council passed WOS-2006-001 The William Raymond Kiogima and Helen Agnes Kiogima Noozwin Act. This act allows Tribal Citizens the opportunity to have multiple names and to change their name.
A citizen can notify Enrollment that they would like to have an Alias Name in their electronic and hard file. This alias name is not an official name change and no Tribal Identification card will be issued with the alias.
A citizen is also able to petition Tribal Court for an official name change. The Petition below must be submitted to Tribal Court. Once a Petition for Name Change has been granted by the Court, Enrollment will change the citizen’s name and publish the new and former name in the Odawa Trails and Odawa Register for 60 days (a minor’s name change will not be published). A new Tribal Identification card with the new name will be issued at no cost.
