    ‘Historic’ Unity Vote Keeps Non-Federally Recognized Tribes as Full Members

    The National Congress of American Indians overwhelmingly voted to keep non-federally recognized tribes as full voting members of the 68-year-old organization. The vote took place at a Constitution Convention during NCAI’s 69th Annual Convention October 22-26 held this year in Sacramento. Nine amendments were proposed to the organization’s Constitution, Bylaws and Standing Rules. The membership accepted eight amendments and rejected one. The most controversial was a proposal to limit NCAI tribal membership to federally recognized tribes and exclude state recognized tribes from voting membership.
