Administration opposes recognition of Va. Indian tribes
Associated Press
September 26, 2002
Last updated: 4:34 PM

The Bush administration opposes a bill granting federal recognition to six Indian tribes in Virginia.

The measure would give the tribes access to federal education, health and housing benefits made available to most American Indians.

But administration officials told Congress on Wednesday that the effort by Virginia lawmakers would cut short an administrative review by the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

``The federal-acknowledgment regulations provide a uniform mechanism to review and consider groups seeking Indian tribal status,'' said Michael R. Smith, director of the Office of Tribal Services at the Interior Department. ``This legislation, however, allows these groups to bypass these standards allowing them to avoid the scrutiny to which other groups have been subjected.''

The federal government has recognized more than 550 Indian tribes in the United States, but none in Virginia where state officials worked systematically for decades to erase all evidence of Indian ancestry. About 21,000 Indians live in Virginia.

Sponsors won a modest victory when the House Resources Committee conducted a hearing on the bill, giving local tribes their first chance to make their case directly to Congress.

``The United States Congress has the opportunity to make a historical change, a positive change that would honor you, as well as honor us,'' said Kenneth Adams, chief of the Upper Mattaponi tribe.

Some have expressed concern that federal recognition could allow legalized casino gambling on Indian reservations in Virginia. Tribal leaders say they have no interest in gambling, noting that they already could run bingo parlors but don't.

The Chickahominy, Eastern Chickahominy, Monacan, Nansemond, Rappahannock and Upper Mattaponi tribes are seeking federal recognition. The Mattaponi and Pamunkey did not join the effort.

There are 4 Micmam/Maliseet band in Maine that are fed recognized.
ok well I followed up on this, and I hate to break it to you, but unless they just got recognized yesterday, it ain't so. In the state of Maine only the Penobs and the Passamaquoddy are federally recognized. Plus, there's only 1 band of MicMacs and one band of Maliseets in the state, anyway (though there's plenty of them married into the Penob & Passamaquoddy tribes)... the Aroostook Band of MicMacs and the Houlton Band of Maliseets. Maybe they are state recognized, I dunno. In Canada both tribes are recognized, but not in the USA.

like i asked before - if you do not care about the gov't saying who is and who isn't native then why the fuss over being enrolled somewhere?
i haven't read all this so this only applies to this comment. Many people don't care what the government thinks...however...the fuss often arises when natives can't particpate in events because they aren't "recognized". They get excluded from conferences, scholarships, programs...you name it...

and the general problem with other natives is enough of a reason to want recogintion. If, we as natives, could decolonize our own identities and stop letting the "man" decide who's indian for us...then m aybe it wouldn't be so important to get recognition

- a skin in law school working on this very issue....

For the EBCI they set their own blood quantum, the BIA doesn't.

We have our own laws, our own council,
