    Non-recognized tribe in Texas hails ruling in eagle feather case

    The non-federally recognized Lipan Apache Tribe of Texas is welcoming an appeals court decision that clears the way for its members to possess eagle feathers.
    In a unanimous decision, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals said the Interior Department failed to explain why Indians who are members of non-recognized tribes can’t possess eagle feathers as part of their religious practices. The ruling will help Robert Soto, the tribe’s vice chairman, secure the return of eagle feathers that were seized during a powwow on March 11, 2006.
