The ONACS Tribal Org. AFM Card is the proof of your ONACS Tribal Org. Full Membership. It is ONACS opinion that a $200.00 contribution is a relatively insignificant sacrifice compared to what both federally and Non federally recognized Tribal American Native People and tribal organizations have endured to enable you, and all other races to benefit from their Sacrifices to worship their indigenous cultural practices.
The code on the back of the card is unique to each member. It can be scanned into any smart phone and immediately link to the user’s information and ONACS Tribal Org. legal documentation.
You have constitutional rights which are listed in the legal section of this web site. Please read and understand them as law enforcement in most cases will be unfamiliar with them. Laws vary from state to state and it is important for you to understand your legal right to participate in the sacraments of the ONACS. ONACS Tribal Org. does not support violation of the law.
ONACS does not have a legal fund to defend you but does have all of the documentation to support you in your earnest desire to participate as the spirit dictates so long as it does not infringe upon the rights of others and is in accordance with the ONACS mission statement and Authorized Participant Rules.
