Federal Agency Overturns Recognition of Two Tribes

Another big story: the Interior Board of Indian Appeals has overturned the federal recognition of the Schagticoke Tribe, which is based in Kent, as well as the Eastern Pequot tribe which is located in southeastern Connecticut.

Published reports indicate that the matters will go back to the Bureau of Indian Affairs for reconsideration.

This is a major victory for those fighting the spread of casinos in Connecticut. It was widely feared that the Schagticoke Tribe would seek to operate a casino in the Danbury area.
