• Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA)
The Kiowa Tribe of Oklahoma places great importance on the safety of all citizens, both native and non-native, that reside within the Kiowa Tribe’s jurisdictional boundaries. Consequently, the presence of convicted sex offenders residing on, or moving through “Indian Country”, can threaten the very safety, health, and welfare of our tribal members- including the most vulnerable, our children. The passage of the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006 (Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act or S.O.R.N.A., Title I of P.L. 109-248 and 42 U.S.C. §16911 et. seq., as amended) will enhance and ensure the protection of future generations from potential harm, threat, or endangerment from convicted sex offenders that may reside or travel through Kiowa tribal lands. The Kiowa Tribe of OK has established a sex offender registry system for such individuals residing on or near the Kiowa Tribe’s jurisdictional boundaries and the Tribes S.O.R.N.A. Code will enforce such requirements.
The Tribes S.O.R.N.A. code requires that any ‘convicted’ sex offender residing on Kiowa trust property must register with the Tribes S.O.R.N.A. office based on theirconviction level or tier ranking.
For more information on S.O.R.N.A., please contact Ron Poolaw, SORNA Project Coordinator or Karen Thompson, Administrative Assistant at 580.654.5030. E-mail: sorna@kiowatribe.org. The SORNA registration office is now located at 8 North Broadway in Carnegie, OK across the street from the Carnegie Police department.
