"This is devastating for the Seneca Nation, the businesses and all the employees, but it won't take us down," Seneca said.
"We've been pushed around by the government for centuries, and we keep finding ways to survive."
No one has taken any credit, but an Amtrak train recently hit railroad ties that were placed across the tracks on the Seneca Indian Nation’s Cattaraugus reservation.
Investigators say there are signs on the western New York reservation saying “No Mail-No Rail,” in reference to a law that recently went into effect banning cigarette sellers from shipping tobacco through the mail.
