Three groups in Tennessee filed a civil rights lawsuit against the state on Tuesday, seeking more than $60 million in damages over their disputed status.
The Remnant Yuchi Nation, the Tanasi Tribe and the United Eastern Lenape Tribe gained state recognition through the Tennessee Commission on Indian Affairs in June 2010. The process was challenged in a lawsuit filed by a lobbyist of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma and the decision was revoked later that year.
The commission no longer functions as an agency so there is no way of securing state recognition other than going through the Legislature. But attempts to resolve the dispute have repeatedly failed so the three groups are seeking to be compensated.
