Indian Country Today Article – Connecticut Just Can’t Stop Discriminating Against Natives

Please click on the following link to read an article written by Chief Quiet Hawk of the Golden Hill Paugussett Tribe for Indian Country Today – “Connecticut Just Can’t Stop Discriminating Against Natives>>.” Chief Quiet Hawk details opinions about the challenges and inequity faced by state-recognized Native American Tribes struggling to gain federal recognition. He states, “Once again, Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal, Gov. Dannel Malloy and small army of elected officials insist that the federal recognition process is broken only when Connecticut Tribes manage to somehow overcome the BIA’s Byzantine complexity. When Tribes are denied federal recognition—as were the Golden Hill Paugussetts—these same people say that the process works just fine, so leave it alone.” Chief Quiet Hawk goes on to outline discrimination from a historical standpoint.
