(a) The person is an adult and submits in writing to the tribal chairman a statement of withdrawal from the Comanche Nation and relinquishment of all rights of tribal membership, signed by him or her and attested by two (2) witnesses, which statement shall automatically effect a permanent withdrawal from membership in the Comanche Nation and a relinquishment of all rights and benefits thereunder; or

(d) The person after the adoption of this constitution receives and accepts or, if a minor, his or her parents or legal guardian accepts for said minor, material or monetary benefits as a result of membership in another Indian tribe, which such receipt and acceptance shall automatically effect a permanent withdrawal from membership in the Comanche Nation and a relinquishment of all rights and benefits thereunder.
