We just enrolled our daughter with the crow tribe my husband is Native American and I am white. They say her degree is 53/128. Was wondering if someone could tell me how much that is? I don't really know what those numbers mean.. Just wondering what percentage of Native American she is

I am just guessing, but it would imply to me that 53 out of her nearest 128 ancestors were Native American.

There are charts to determine the quantum:

Calculations for Quantum Indian Blood

I assume there are charts that will derive the 53/128 figure, also.

It would also imply that your child has a complete pedigree of about six generations.

Don't confuse enrollment with blood quantum. Each tribe has it's own enrollment requirements.
Your husband is not a 4/4 blood quantum native American, though he may be an enrolled member of the Crow tribe. The Crow tribe has a 1/4 requirement for new enrollment, but also accepts all members and their descendants who were enrolled when their constitution was adopted. Members may be less than 1/4 Crow, but their status may be different.
I am non-native and my wife's CIB (certificate of indian blood) is 4/4. She is full blooded. Our children are all enrolled in her tribe as 2/4, or 50%.

OP's child has already been enrolled.

She is curious about how the quantum was calculated.

It means her father's degree is 53/64. She is 1/2 of that.

53/128, 53 of her 128 5 great grandparents was Indian, (from the Crow tribe). Some who is 1/4 Crow for example, 1 of their 4 grandparents were Crow. If you have two grandparents who were Crow is 2/4.

Does your husband belong to this Crow tribe of Montana? Why don't you contact them?

Your CDIB (Certified Degree of Indian Blood) is obtained from the BIA (Bureau of Indian Affairs). You need to send to the correct agency, the Crow Tribe can advise you or the BIA. Once you receive your CDIB, it is then, you see if you qualify to enroll with the tribe with your Tribal blood degree and if you meet their criteria for enrollment. You did not need to send your original birth certificate, only order a certified one. You should have verified the processes first. Please see my below link to the BIA.
