We, The Montaukett Indian Nation want to regain the status that was unjustly and illegally taken away and become a recognized tribe in the State of New York.

The Montaukett Indian Nation is seeking support for Bill A0740B/S5894-B that will overturn a 1910 ruling by a judge to restore the Montaukett as a recognized New York Indian tribe.

Please pass Bill A0740B/S5894-B: NY Recognition of Montaukett Indian Nation.
Sincerely,
(Your Name)

      In WA state there were many small tribes that have never recieved their recognition status. I fully support the Montaukett Indian Nation to overturn the 1910 ruling by a judge snd restore them as a recognized tribe.
