(b) If any period of limitation or repose, or any other defense based wholly or partly on the passage of time, has not barred any claim, filed or unfiled, by or on behalf of an Indian, Indian nation, or tribe or band of Indians claiming or asserting damages or an interest in land in York, Lancaster, or Chester County, South Carolina, under section 2116 of the Revised Statutes (25 U.S.C. 177; commonly known as the Indian Non-Intercourse Act), the Constitution of the United States, common law, or treaty, as of the date of the enactment of this Act, the running of any such period of limitation or repose, or any other defense based wholly or partly on the passage of time, shall be suspended as of the date of the enactment of this Act until October 1, 1993. On October 1, 1993, the time upon which any such defenses are based shall resume running. The period of time remaining for any timerelated defense to become a bar to any such claim shall be the same on October 1, 1993, as it was immediately prior to the date of the enactment of this Act. Nothing in this subsection shall be construed to affect the application of any period of limitation, repose, or time bar to the claim of any individual Inchan which is pursued under any Federal or State law generally applicable to non-Indians as well as Indians.
