Companies established by members of a state-recognized Creek Indian tribe in Alabama were awarded more than $240 million in federal contracts even though the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs found no evidence that they were of indigenous background, according to an investigation by the Los Angeles Times.

Two companies run by a member of a different Alabama group that has not obtained federal recognition secured another $273 million, according to the Times. In both cases, the money came from federal minority business contracts.
