In what could be a repeat of the Oneida land settlement that has fallen apart, the state of New York has approached one of the parties in the St. Regis Mohawk land claim.

There are four Mohawk groups suing the state. Gov. George Pataki (R) has proposed settling the claim to the St. Regis tribal council but not the others, according to The Albany Times-Union.

Pataki says settling the claim is essential to approval of the tribe's proposed casino in the Catskills region of New York.
