Onondaga Nation not worried about internal spats

Leaders of the Onondaga Nation aren't worried about internal disputes that have affected other tribal land claims.

But the tribe still has to decide whether to include its relatives in Canada in the claim. In addition to the 1,500 on the New York reservation, about 300 Onondagas live on the Six Nations Reserve in Ontario, The Syracuse Post-Standard reports.

First Nations have been included in other Haudenosaunee land claims. The Oneida and Mohawk lawsuits include tribal governments across the border.

The Onondaga Nation, considered the most traditional of the six Haudenosaunee tribes, sued the state and private companies for more than 2 million acres in upstate New York.
