Historic steps to return tribal land
The state of California has agreed to return 2,800 acres of land to the Shasta Indian Nation.

It’s not just any 2,800 acres. It was home to the Shasta people, but was flooded by a series of dams in a giant hydroelectric project more than a century ago.

And Congress just approved a similar transfer of 1,600 acres of land along the Missouri River for the Winnebago Tribe that the federal government acquired through eminent domain in 1970.

Join Native America Calling to hear about the latest transactions and other noteworthy progress in tribal land returns.
