I'm six tribes and am lucky enough to be from a tribe that adds up all your blood from federally recognized tribes to count towards your blood quantum. Just as long as one of your parents is a community member. When I went to college I didn't list all six I just listed the one I'm enrolled in. My memory is kind of bad but I think they asked for the specific tribe you're enrolled in. I always thought it was so the financial aid office could contact your tribes education office. I have a friend that is a recruiter and he loves recruiting natives because the tribes usually have money to pay tuition. I could imagine the For Profit academic organizations are making a great deal off from tribes.
