New rules might recognize more tribes, create new casinos

Rob Jacobs, center, a member of North Carolina’s Lumbee Tribe, wore his eagle feathers at a Lumbee powwow. Since the tribe is not recognized by the federal government, Jacobs violates the Bald Eagle Protection Act whenever he wears his feathers. Only members of federally-recognized tribes are allowed to wear the feathers for religious or cultural purposes. (Photo courtesy of Rob Jacobs/MCT)
