BIA holds meeting on Cayuga Nation land-into-trust
The Bureau of Indian Affairs is holding a public hearing in New York today on the Cayuga Nation land-into-trust application.

The tribe wants 125 acres placed in trust. The land is within the tribe's ancestral reservation.

Officials in Cayuga and Seneca counties oppose the application. Their No Cayuga Land Into Trust website contains the draft environmental impact statement prepared for the BIA.
