A Real Commitment

The FBI had learned of the possession of peyote by the Warners from the president of the NAC of NA, Emerson Jackson (Navajo), so it was he who brought them to trial.
Jackson said that they were not bona fide members of the NAC because they were not Indians. He maintained that in 1982 a motion had been passed by the NAC of NA to the effect that membership in that organization be limited to persons with one-quarter Indian blood, thereby excluding this white couple.

Cannabis Churches - Peyote Way v. Thornburgh, 922 F.2d 1210 (5th Cir. 1991)

www.cannabischurches.net [cached]

[**11] During his tenure as NAC National Chairman, Emerson Jackson testified that the NAC is made up of approximately 36 chapters, each separately incorporated by a different tribe and that all NAC members are of 25% Native American ancestry.
The record contains articles of incorporation filed by the Native American Church of Navajoland, Inc. and a "Certificate of Authorization" to transport peyote that requires a tribal enrollment number, corroborating this testimony. See also Kennedy v. Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, 459 F.2d 415, 416, 418 (9th Cir. 1972) ("the Native American Church is a religious organization of American Indians drawn from a variety of western tribes;" "membership in the Native American Church is limited to those of at least one-quarter Indian blood"), cert. denied, 409 U.S. 1115, 93 S. Ct. 901, 34 L. Ed. 2d 699 (1973). Jackson repeatedly testified that tribal membership and 25% Native American ancestry are prerequisites to NAC membership and although Peyote Way's counsel cross-examined him, Peyote Way offers nothing to impeach his testimony. But Jackson testified that "in our bylaws, we stipulate that they be 25 percent Indian. See also Warner, 595 F. Supp. at 601-02 ("the government has filed the by-laws of the Native American Church of North America, which require members to have at least one-quarter Native American blood"). Peyote Way also cites Trujillo's testimony that he was an NAC member without ever having a tribal enrollment number and that during his NAC membership he saw many who are not Native Americans participate [*1216] in NAC rites and vote for NAC leadership.


Native/Non-Native Religious Use of Peyote

The FBI had learned of the possession of peyote by the Warners from the president of the NAC of NA (North America) Emerson Jackson (Navajo), so it was he who brought them to trial.Jackson said that they were not bona fide members of the NAC because they were not Indians.He maintained that in 1982 a motion had been passed by the NAC of NA to the effect that membership in that organization be limited to persons with one-quarter Indian blood, thereby excluding this white couple.A jury in Grand Forks Federal Court found that although they were not Indians, nevertheless they were members in good standing of the local congregation of peyotists.The charges were dismissed.This case not only illustrates harassment under the Drug Control Act, but it also brings up the legality of non-Indians as bona fide members of the NAC.From the beginning, attendance of non-Indians to peyote meetings has been a somewhat personal or tribal matter.For instance, very early in Oklahoma some Caddo refused to allow non-Indians to attend any of their meetings.
