Response from Dan C.Jones: "Among the many tribes in the east there are as many holdouts to federal and even state recognition. Among the eight Mohawk settlements in NY and Canada as in Florida there are Traditional factions who carry no BIA/Tribal ID cards and are not enrolled as they believe such as abdication of their inherent or aboriginal sovereignty. In Florida such a movement lives today. Seminole and Miccosukee Tribes have such factions or clans. In Florida they are known simply as Seminole. Many of these people still live in the swamps they sought refuge during the Seminole Wars of the early and mid 1800's."
