After decades of efforts, and broken federal promises, the Chinook Indian Nation was granted formal recognition in 2001. Eighteen months later, this decision was reversed by the administration of George W Bush.
In addition to opposition from the BIA, the Chinook have been opposed by other tribes, particularly the Quinault, who were instrumental in overturning the short-lived 2001 recognition.
