Nonsense. They are very good at using White man's laws and lawyers to get all the benefits of being American citizens without paying all the taxes. For them to then declare they are a sovereign nation within the USA is outrageous.
The tribe’s Feb. 27 acquisition prompted Brad Jones, a member of the Citizens Advisory Committee to the Seneca County Board of Supervisors’ Indian Affairs Committee, to suggest that water and sewer service be shut off to all Cayuga Nation properties three years or more in arrears on property taxes, and to consider adopting a local law prohibiting the Nation from buying new properties until back taxes are paid.
The Indian Affairs Committee was set to discuss the issue Tuesday night.
