Schneiderman Supports Shinnecock Nation In Attack Made By Connecticut Coalition


Suffolk County Legislator Jay Schneiderman (I-Montauk) expressed his outrage with the Connecticut Coalition for Gaming Jobs' appeal to block the Shinnecock Indian Nation after their successful bid in gaining federal recognition. Generations of Shinnecocks have dreamt of the day when the tribe would finally receive official recognition. This historic designation makes numerous services and monies available to tribal members, for needed housing, education and health care programs.
