For my oral - web page presentation I want to focus on Native Americans. Of course there are many aspects to this topic and the information could go on forever. I asked myself what, in today's society, directly affects the tribes of this country, or even California? What is it that they're looking for? Federal recognition. There is a tribe right in our back yard who asks this same question. The Juaneno tribe of San Juan Capistrano petitioned for Federal Recognition in August of 1982 and still have not recieved it. Why? This is my project, to outline and discuss the steps in which a tribe must take in order to be federally recognized and hopefully find out why some tribes are and others are not.
Talk to me :)
