In addition to state and local officials and lawmakers in Connecticut, U.S. Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) and Rep. Rob Simmons (R-Conn.) are among those who can't figure out how the Eastern Pequot Tribe got recognized.

Residents of southeastern Connecticut, home to several tribes, are also upset. The opinions of "experts" on Indian culture are beginning to pour in to the local media although not all views are negative.
