The article focuses on the problem of federal recognition of tribes considered extinct for state and local officials in Massachusetts. In December, 2004, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ruled that an indigenous group's agreement with state and local authorities that its lands would be governed by local land-use laws was not nullified when the group later received federal recognition as a tribe. The case is Wiener, Building Inspector and Zoning Officer of Aquinnah v. Wampanoag Aquinnah Shellfish Hatchery Corp.
