Seneca-Cayuga Tribe makes offer to Pataki
Wednesday, November 19, 2003

The Seneca-Cayuga Tribe of Oklahoma is offering to limit land acquisitions in New York and discuss taxation issues in order to settle a dispute with the state.

The tribe recently shared in a land claim judgment for 64,000 acres in New York. But state and local officials say the tribe can't re-establish its presence in the state. The tribe wants to build a bingo hall on 229 acres it recently purchased in its aboriginal territory.

The tribe's offer was made in a November 13 letter to Gov. George Pataki (R).
