State Pays $2.4M to Indian Tribe Over Withheld Recognition


November 16, 2018

New Jersey has agreed to pay $2.4 million to settle state and federal lawsuits over its failure to recognize the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Tribal Nation as an American Indian tribe.

The settlement resolves the plaintiffs' claims that New Jersey provided information to the U.S. General Accounting Office calling into question the status of the 3,000-member nation as an official American Indian tribe. The state agreed under the settlement to notify relevant state and federal agencies of the tribe's official status.
