Eastern Pequot factions learning to live as one
Monday, August 11, 2003

The once fractured membership of the Eastern Pequot Tribal Nation has been getting to know each other since being extended federal recognition last summer.

The Eastern Pequot and the Paucatuck Eastern factions have been split since at least 1973. But they say they are putting their differences aside to advance their goals as one tribe. The new tribal council includes representative of both groups.

"We've always been one, whether or not we recognized it,� one tribal member told The New London Day. "We're now in a situation where we have to work together to pave the way for future generations."
