11/04/08 - Supreme Court case interests local tribes

Author:

Oregon tribes, including the Confederate Tribes of Grand Ronde, are keeping a close eye on a U.S. Supreme Court case that involves a plot of land 3,000 miles away.

The Supreme Court will decide whether the Rhode Island-based Narragansett Tribe, and other tribes recognized after the 1934 Indian Reorganization Act, can place land into trust with the federal government.
