    Shinnecock Nation spent $32M in 32 years for federal recognition

    The Shinnecock Nation of New York was the most recent tribe to gain federal recognition through the Bureau of Indian Affairs, an effort that lasted decades and required a lot of money.
    The tribe was one of the first to apply for recognition under the Part 83 regulations, which were adopted in 1978. After $33 million and 32 years, the BIA’s favorable decision became final in October 2010
