Thruway through sovereign nation

Tribe's Thruway signs welcome motorist to Seneca territoryThe Seneca Nation of Indians has erected signs along a western stretch of the Thruway welcoming motorists to sovereign territory.

The signs posted on both sides of Interstate 90 near Exit 58, 25 miles south of Buffalo, alert drivers that they're entering and leaving land controlled by the Seneca tribe.

The signs also tell motorists that a fee is being assessed for their passage through Seneca lands and is paid by New York state.
