Tuesday, October 11, 2022

Waiting for recognition
A number of tribes remain on the waiting list for federal recognition.

Some want to legally secure their sovereign rights and access to trust land status, while others hope to gain federal emergency assistance or the power to take on civil lawsuits against corporate polluters.

Today on Native America Calling, Shawn Spruce hears from some tribes on the cusp of federal recognition about what it could mean for these petitioning groups.
