The Day: Eastern Pequot Chairman Vows to Fight New Tribal Recognition Rule

EPTN Chairman Dennis Jenkins provided the following statement to The Day regarding the BIA Tribal Recognition Ruling:

“Everyone knew it was in trouble,” Jenkins said of the provision. “But it doesn’t make sense that tribes can’t re-petition, whether they go to the back of the line, or the front of the line. There are tribes that were denied at first and then got recognized. The Mohegans were denied, but they were able to submit additional documentation and they got recognized.”
