Tuesday, March 16, 2004

The Santa Ynez Band of Mission Indians has asked the Bureau of Indian Affairs to take 745 acres in southern California.

The tribe is partnering with former actor Fess Parker, who starred as Davy Crockett in "Davy Crockett, Indian Fighter," to create a housing community. The $200 million deal, to be announced today, includes up to 500 luxury homes, a hotel resort, two golf courses and a horse center.

The land is about two miles from the Chumash Reservation, according to The Los Angeles Times. The tribe is paying $12 million for the land.
