Arizona tribe debates use of land for new freeway

The Gila River Indian Community of Arizona is concerned about allowing a proposed freeway to run through its reservation.

Discussions on the freeway have been ongoing for 10 years. But the tribe is reluctant to offer its land because burial grounds and sacred sites could be affected.

The state says it will make a final decision about the project in late 2007 or early 2008.
