The Qutekcak Native Tribe of Alaska is optimistic for a decision on its federal recognition petition. The tribe sent a third petition to the Bureau of Indian Affairs in 2008. There doesn't appear to be any new information from the Office of Federal Acknowledgment but tribal officials believe a decision is imminent. No Alaska tribes have been recognized through the BIA's process since 1978. But the agency has reaffirmed the federal status of at least two Alaska tribes since 2001. The Qutekcak Native Tribe has been the subject of federal recognition bills in the past. Get the Story:
