Hoh Tribe confronts loss of reservation without new land
The Hoh Tribe of Washington is ready to move to higher ground in order to escape constant flooding and threats of a tsunami.

The tribe already purchased 420 acres for new development. But the move won't be complete until Congress passes a bill to transfer land within Olympic National Park to the reservation.

"We are ready to move, we are ready grow," Chair Maria Lopez told CNN.

The Hoh Indian Tribe Safe Homelands Act is ready for action on the House and Senate floor.
