TURTLE HEALING BAND MEMBERSHIP AGREEMENT
I do hereby request membership in Turtle Healing Band (“THB”) to be treated as a patient by a Tribal Provider (“TP”) licensed and approved by First Nation Medical Board (“FNMB”). With the signing of this Agreement, I/we agree that all people have a divinely-given right to choose and receive for themselves any type of healing they feel is best for their mind, body and spirit. These options include, but are not limited to, all forms of indigenous medicine (e.g., alternative, complementary, holistic, integrative, etc.) whether traditional or non-traditional, as well as conventional medicine.
In addition, I affirm and understand that: (1) THB members are protected by the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution as well as the United Nations General Assembly (Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted at the Palais de Chailot in Paris on December 10, 1948); (2) THB is outside the jurisdiction and authority of federal, state, county, and city agencies and authorities for any and all complaints or grievances against FNMB, FNMB licensees, FNMB staff, Turtle Healing Band Clinics (“THBC”), and THBC staff; and (3) THB member records are the private property of THBClicensed facilities and are kept confidential.
I also attest that I am here solely on my behalf (and that of my family) and not as an agent or representative for any Federal, State, County, or City Agencies. Further, I/we neither represent any Board (e.g., medical, zoning, etc.) or Licensing Agency (e.g., government, healthcare, etc.) nor am I on a mission of entrapment or investigation on behalf of these or any other agencies, either on this or any subsequent visit(s).
I (and my family) agree to become a patient(s) and private member(s) of THB so that I/we may be entitled to receive goods and services from a TP providing service in a THBC facility. I further understand that it is entirely my/our own responsibility to consider the advice and recommendations offered to me/us by TPs or our fellow THB members and to educate myself/ourselves as to the possible risks and benefits of such recommendations. I/We agree to hold the tribal practitioners, healers, technicians, staff, and other THB members harmless from unintentional liability resulting from my/our indigenous healthcare, except for harm that results from criminal misconduct or gross negligence as determined by FNMB and/or defined by Crow Tribal Court. I/We agree to submit to the jurisdiction of FNMB for the referral of any and all complaints against TPs to FNMB for dispute resolution. Further, I/We agree to submit any civil complaints against TPs to Crow Tribal Court for dispute resolution.
Notice is hereby given to all persons that they may be in violation of Civil and Constitutional Rights should they receive a copy of this Agreement and then act under the color of law to intentionally interfere with the free exercise of the Rights retained by THB members under the Ninth Amendment (see Title 42, U.S.C 1983 et seq.; see also Title 18, Sec 241-42).
$35.00 (Member) - $50.00 (Family) - Free (Children)
I enclose the fees required as consideration for my/our membership affiliation and agreement. I agree to pay these fees yearly, unless otherwise instructed. The term of my/our membership begins with the date of the signing of this agreement. I hereby certify, attest and warrant that I have carefully read the above and foregoing THB membership agreement and I (and my family) fully understand and agree with its terms and conditions.
