Vital Statistics



It is the mission of the Santa Clara Pueblo Office of Vital Statistics and Enrollment to assist the Santa Clara Pueblo Member/Non-Member community in obtaining tribal/ state-issued identification cards and other legal documents. We work one-on-one with the Office of the Governor and Tribal Council as well as other Programs within our Tribal Administration and outside entities while being confidential and culturally sensitive to traditions, language, and Santa Clara Pueblo customs.

The OVSE Staff is available to answer any questions you have regarding Tribal Enrollment, Non-Member residency membership, ID cards, hosting our community legal documentation, and/or personal information our community wishes to submit to our Progeny Database System.
