State and local officials in Connecticut met on Tuesday to discuss an appeal of the federal recognition of the Eastern Pequot Tribe.

State attorney general Richard Blumenthal and leaders of three towns oppose the Eastern Pequot Tribe and the Paucatuck Eastern Pequot Tribe. The two petitioned separately but Assistant Secretary Neal McCaleb acknowledged the groups as one historic tribe.
