New York Oneidas feel threatened by cousins

The chairwoman of the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin is disputing claims that her tribe is threatening the Oneidas of New York.

The New York Oneidas think otherwise. In a letter, they accuse their Wisconsin cousins are jeopardizing settlement of a 250,000-acre land claim in New York.

The New York Oneidas moved to settle the claim without consulting Oneidas in Wisconsin or Canada. The New York branch also doesn't think the Wisconsin Oneidas have a right to re-establish a presence in the state.
