(a) If a Minnesota identification card is deemed an acceptable form of identification
in Minnesota Statutes or Rules, a tribal identification card is also an acceptable form of
identification. A tribal identification card is a primary document for purposes of Minnesota
Rules, part 7410.0400, and successor rules.
(b) For purposes of this section, "tribal identification card" means an unexpired identification
card issued by a Minnesota tribal government of a tribe recognized by the Bureau of Indian
Affairs, United States Department of the Interior, that contains the legal name, date of birth,
signature, and picture of the enrolled tribal member.
(c) The tribal identification card must contain security features that make it as impervious to
alteration as is reasonably practicable in its design and quality of material and technology. The
security features must use materials that are not readily available to the general public. The tribal
identification card must not be susceptible to reproduction by photocopying or simulation and
must be highly resistant to data or photograph substitution and other tampering. The requirements
of this section do not apply to tribal identification cards used to prove an individual's residence for
purposes of section 201.061, subdivision 3.
