A federal judge on Wednesday postponed a hearing on the federal recognition of the Golden Hill Paugussett Tribe of Connecticut due to ongoing mediation with the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

Paugussett Chief Quiet Hawk said the talks were going well. A BIA spokesperson said the discussions are productive.

Ada Deer, President Clinton's first Assistant Secretary, denied the tribe acknowledgment. Michael Anderson, the top aide to Kevin Gover, Deer's replacement, agreed to have the final determination reconsidered.

The judge scheduled a new hearing November 26,
