    Mackinac Tribe files suit against DOI to gain federal recognition

    The Mackinac Tribe of Michigan is suing the Obama administration in hopes of gaining federal recognition.
    The tribe’s Ojibwe and Odawa ancestors signed a series of treaties between 1783 and 1855. But the Mackinac Bands have never been recognized as a tribe despite being identified as a distinct community by the Bureau of Indian Affairs as recently as 1926.
