(Source: Sunday Telegram - 9/22/96)

The Chaubunagungamaug and Hassanamisco bands, based in Massachusetts, are no longer working together on a single petition for federal recognition of the Nipmuc tribe. Instead, each band intends to file its own application for federal recognition. A decision will be made by the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs within the next six months as to whether or not either of the petitioning Nipmuc bands constitutes a tribe.
