“Tribe holds city rally to demand trust status”: Today’s edition of The Providence (R.I.) Journal contains an article that begins, “Members of the Narragansett Indian Tribe and supporters paraded more than three miles through the city and held a rally downtown yesterday to call on Congress to pass legislation that would allow the government to place land in trust for the tribe in Charlestown. Legislation would be necessary for the tribe to work around a decision last month by the U.S. Supreme Court that the U.S. Department of the Interior could not place land in trust for the tribe because the Narragansetts were not under federal jurisdiction when the Indian Reorganization Act became law in 1934.”
