The question of removed and unremoved Indian nations competing with each other arises here in New York in the context of the land claims. There is also a land claim which has been filed in Pennsylvania. There are no federally recognized tribes in Pennsylvania and thus, there is an issue of a removed tribe returning to exercise jurisdiction. This raises the next question: what kind of jurisdiction do returning removed tribes have, and, given that removal policy across the country, can these types of cases arise in any number of states?
