Connecticut tribes hope for second shot at federal recognition

Three Connecticut tribes that were denied federal recognition are hoping to get another shot if the Bureau of Indian Affairs rewrites its regulations.

The Eastern Pequot Tribal Nation, the Golden Hill Paugussett Tribe and the Schaghticoke Tribal Nation received negative final decisions during the Bush administration. But the Obama administration is proposing changes that they say could revive their cases.

At issue is a provision that applies to tribes with a state-recognized reservation. All three tribes have reservations that date to Colonial times so they believe the change could benefit their rejected petitions.

Politicians from the state, however, are trying to prevent the BIA from adopting the proposal. They say the tribes shouldn't get a second chance.
