3,461 = Total Number of Enrolled Tribal Members

*This number shows that 2 persons are enrolled as members of the Pueblo but they do not have any Isleta Indian blood.

A person with no Isleta Indian blood may become a member of Isleta because the Tribal Constitution states, “[a]ny person of one-half (1/2) or more degree of Indian blood who is hereafter naturalized or adopted in conformity with an appropriate ordinance of the Council or according to the laws and traditions of the Pueblo of Isleta.” Article II, Section 4. This provision allows our Tribe to enroll any person as a tribal member even though that person has no Isleta Indian blood.  The only requirement is that the person have at least one-half Indian blood.
