I don't have time right now, but so I or someone else remembers - a good thing to have here would be recent leadership disputes on the 32 acres of the New York Oneida territory...

32 Acres rebuttal[edit]

Keep in mind that a Wiki is not a news source or a "current event" depository. Only noteworthy things should be entered here. Obsessing on having the most up to date information possible blinds you from the fact that in the big scheme of things, current news is only important now. 21:37, 22 December 2005 (UTC)

Why I'm removing the allegation of racism in pro-Oneida hiring practices[edit]

There's a difference between race and tribal membership. You're a member of the tribe if you're entitled to a plastic card that says so; your 'race' (whatever that means) might be anything. Discriminating against non-tribal members isn't racial discrimination, properly speaking, because it also excludes American Indians of other tribes, along with detribalized American Indians; meanwhile, it includes people who might be perceived by others to be White, who nonetheless possess a tribal identity and membership. These are overlapping categories, but not identical ones. QuartierLatin1968 The worker's flag is deepest red,/It shrouded oft our martyred dead 17:52, 22 December 2005 (UTC)

Potential source of more information?[edit]

I've moved this link from the article page external links section to here as it's a more appropriate placement : cheers Deconstructhis (talk) 00:08, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

Great Swamp link[edit]

Near beginning of entry Is to a place down state not south of lake. I.e. near NYC rather than Syracuse. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:04, 17 September 2013 (UTC)

Move discussion in progress[edit]

There is a move discussion in progress on Talk:Cayuga people which affects this page. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. —RMCD bot 09:59, 12 March 2014 (UTC)
