AKA Carrie Marie Underwood
Nationality: United States
Executive summary: American Idol 2005 winner
 Reportedly a member of the Muscogee Creek Nation (mainly information spread through her Wikipedia entry, which carries no credence whatsoever). Prior to admission to a tribe, often a “Certificate of Degree of Indian or Alaska Native Blood” must be obtained from the Bureau of Indian Affairs. The Creek tribe at one time had a 1/32 blood quantum requirement. Alternatively, lineal descent to an individual listed on the 1906 Dawes Roll will grant citizenship, no matter the blood quantum. It is not publicly known how much Creek blood Underwood has in her, if any, or whether any membership, if it exists at all, is honorary or actual.
