Aleut Community

Aleut Community License Plate
Alaska Aleut Map

The Aleut Community license plate shown here was briefly available at a cost of $5 and was used for a three-wheeler according to a St. Paul, Alaska, resident.

Drivers licenses of St. Paul residents have their own "off system" classification.

Embassy and Kingdom of Heaven

Embassy/Kingdom of Heaven License Plates

The Embassy of Heaven is a Christian-based religious movement based in Stayton, Oregon that seeks to separate from secular government. Its members profess themselves to be literal citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven and reject any ties to what they refer to as "worldly governments". Federal authorities have asserted that the organization is set up to avoid paying taxes.
The organization issues its own identity documents, business licenses, motor vehicle title certificates and license plates. Several members have been arrested for driving cars with "Kingdom of Heaven" license plates and showing similar driver's licenses to law enforcement officers.

The Northern Cherokee Nation in Missouri cannot issue their own plates because they are not a federally recognized tribe.
The only legal way to have license plates, was to have the state issue them as organizational plates.
An organizational plate requires at least 100 applications by a certain deadline. The tribe could not come up with enough tribal members applying by the deadline so license plate collectors stepped in and ordered enough plates to put them over the minimum.
