BIA urges San Pasqual Band to resolve dispute
The Bureau of Indian Affairs will meet with the San Pasqual Band of Mission Indians of California in hopes of resolving a leadership dispute.

Two factions claim control of the tribe. They split over an enrollment dispute affecting 80 people, about a quarter of the tribe's membership.

As a result of the dispute, the BIA says it doesn't recognize the tribe's government. That could hurt the tribe's federal funding and its gaming operation, superintendent Jim Fletcher said.
