NJ and Gov Christie Sued by Lenni-Lenape Tribal Nation
July 21, 2015
On Monday a lawsuit was filed by the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Tribal Nation
against New Jersey state and Gov. Chris Christie’s administration.
The civil-rights action lawsuit was brought on by the governor's administration
is trying to rescind on New York's recognition of the tribe. However, between
1980 and 1982 the tribe was officially recognized as an American Indian tribe.
The tribe believes that the state believes they will try to build a casino.
However, the tribe is against gambling due to the charter and religious beliefs.
In 33 years the tribe has never tried to obtain federal gaming rights.
The recognition makes the tribe eligible for college scholarships, federal
grants for economic development, grants for healthcare, and jobs. The tribe can
also label items as American Indian made. If the tribe loses recognition it
would affect 3,000 people.
