Mohegan official doubts recognitions

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 30, 2002

An official of the Mohegan Tribe of Connecticut told reporters on Tuesday that recognition of other tribal groups in the state is a "longshot."

Several tribes in the state are near the end of the federal recognition process, give or take a couple of years. They include the Eastern Pequot Tribe, the Paucatuck Eastern Pequot Tribe, the Golden Hill Paugussett Tribe and the Schaghticoke Tribal Nation.

But of the tribes, which are all state-recognied, Mohegan chief of staff Tom Acevedo doesn't seem to think any will see a positive outcome. "The Schaghticokes (of Kent) have the strongest shot," Tom Acevedo is quoted by The Norwich Bulletin as saying.
