Schaghticoke Indian Tribe told to bolster federal recognition bid

The Bureau of Indian Affairs is telling the Schaghticoke Indian Tribe to bolster its federal recognition petition.

The tribe submitted a letter of intent in May 2001. Additional documents were submitted just last month but the BIA said the petition, so far, remains incomplete, The Connecticut Mirror reported.

"The Department finds that your recent submission of material, together with the documents that you previously submitted, do not meet the requirements for a documented petition," R. Lee Fleming, the director of the BIA's Office of Federal Acknowledgment wrote in a letter posted by The Mirror.

Fleming noted that the Schaghticoke Indian Tribe is not the same group as the Schaghticoke Tribal Nation. The latter was denied federal recognition during the Obama administration after heated opposition from Connecticut.

State law recognizes the Schaghticoke as an "indigenous" tribe with "self-governing" rights. The state also recognizes the Schaghticoke Reservation as being held in trust for the Schaghticoke Tribe.
