For Cayuga Nation a day a century in the making

The Cayuga Nation of New York took the first steps to reclaiming its homeland on Tuesday with the opening of a simple gas station.

The tribe has been without a reservation. Its lands were sold off to New York state without federal approval, a federal judge ruled.

The tribe says the four acres it has purchased are former reservation. With a casino in the works, gaming money will re-establish the tribe's homeland.
