Little Shell Tribe Federal Recognition News




July 17, 2004:
The Little Shell Tribe of Chippewa Indians Federal Recognition Petition Status information is now posted on this website. To view them, go to the Federal Register Documents page.

February 6, 2003:
In February 1997 the Branch of Acknowledgment and Research (BAR) placed the Tribe's federal recognition petition on active review status.

After many delays, the Assistant Secretary in July of 2000, published a preliminary finding in favor of recognition. On October 18-19, 2000, a technical assistance meeting was held with BAR to outline a program of action to strengthen the petition prior to the final determination. Work is being done to strengthen the Tribe's petition and the period for supplementing the record has been extended to january, 2003 because of a large amount of new data being collected and analyzed.

In November 2002, the Tribal Council has asked for a six month extension to July 12, 2003, and my need more time because of new and more information found in Canada and in the Crown's records in England.

Expect a second extension in July to extend an additional 6 months to December 2003.

**Webmaster Note: If you have any documents that show and prove the continuity of our Tribe, especially from 1900 to the present, PLEASE Forward copies of those records with references of where they are located and proof of their authenticity ASAP, to the Main Office.

If you could also send a copy to WebMaster@LittleShellTribe.com, I will also post them on the website.
