Seneca-Cayuga Tribe seeks deal to end land claim
Friday, March 19, 2004

The Seneca-Cayuga Tribe of Oklahoma is offering New York a settlement to its land claim.

Tribal leaders say they will settle their portion of a $247.9 million judgment for a casino without slot machines. The offer was made to New York lawmakers in meetings this week.

The tribe and the Cayuga Nation of New York won the judgment for 64,000 acres of stolen land. The tribes are appealing the award, saying it is too low. The state is appealing, saying the land claim is without merit.
