Mohegan, Pequot descendants can't get enrolled

Getting enrolled in two of the wealthiest tribes is difficult, some Mohegan and Pequot descendants have discovered.

The Mohegan Tribe, with about 1,640 members, closed its enrollment process and has turned people away. So has the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation, which has about 800 members.

Mohegan and Pequot descendants say it is unfair that they can't get enrolled. They say they can prove their ancestry but do not meet current eligibility requirements.
