The Bureau of Indian Affairs needs to approve amendments to Connecticut’s gaming compacts with the Mashantucket Pequots and Mohegans, the tribes behind the East Windsor casino, which is not being built on a tribal reservation.
The tribe, which has state recognition and claims between 100 and 200 members, was rejected when it submitted a petition for recognition from the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs.
