Chairman's Public Statement July 2017

July 1, 2017

Dear Tribal Member,

It is our great pleasure to share with you your portion of an $8 Million dividend distribution. This $478 check is not a Per Capita payment and will not affect that distribution in November. Also, there are no taxes associated with these funds as specified by the Comanche Nation IRS Specialist and the Tribal General Welfare Exclusion Act of 2014, Section 139E of the Internal Revenue Code.

We were able to obtain and share the funds through numerous means; winning a lawsuit, staying within budget, excess from 2016 fiscal year, rents, leases and running the Tribe as a business. You are reaping the rewards from those actions.

In order to negotiate (receive) these funds for a minor, you must provide proof of paternity or guardianship by presenting their birth certificate. The name on the birth certificate and check must match. If the name of the parent/guardian on the back of the certificate has changed (i.e. marriage or divorce) that parent will need to provide a marriage certificate or divorce decree so the bank can identify the parent is the correct person. Parent/guardian(s) listed on the back of the birth certificate are the only ones who can negotiate the check and must have valid ID (driver's license, state ID or tribal ID card). Additionally, the guardian must be present in order to negotiate the check for minor.


For adults negotiating checks you must present a valid ID as listed above. There are no stipulations or provisions for those negotiating checks at out of state banks as all banks have their own policies/procedures.

It is important that you cash or deposit the enclosed check within 90 days or the check will be null and void and the funds reverted back to the Tribe. We have a certified accountant handling this process.

Should you have any questions please call the Comanche Tribal Headquarters (877) 492-4988. A task force is assigned for any and all verification of checks returned regulated by the certified accountant. Calls should not be placed or made to City National Bank.

We have numerous projects on the horizon. With your support and prayers, we expect to continue in this positive and progressive direction which in turn benefits you.

We thank you for voting June 3rd to approve this $8 Million dividend distribution. Our prayer is that it will richly bless your family. Be good to one another is our only wish.
