Why Queen recognises a US tribe but US government does not
Condensed by Native Village
Virginia: Six Native American tribes in Virginia are campaigning to win formal recognition from the federal government.
The tribes claim they have been denied their proper rights since a 1920s state law on "racial integrity" decreed that people in Virginia were either "white or coloured"
The BBC (British Broadcasting Company) went to a pow wow hosted by the Chickahominy to hear what formal recognition would mean for their community.
