BIA Acquires Pe’Sla Property in Trust for Four Tribes

Here is the decision in State of South Dakota v. Great Plains Regional Director, Bureau of Indian Affairs:


An excerpt:

For the reasons below, I affirm the Regional Director’s Decision to accept Pe’Sla in trust. The Regional Director properly determined that he had the statutory authority to accept Pe’Sla in trust pursuant to the IRA. Next, Department policies clearly provide the Regional Director with authority to accept Pe’Sla in trust due to its location within the BIA Great Plains Region. Finally, I reject the State’s argument that the Regional Director did not properly consider the relevant criteria included at 25 C.F.R. §§ 151.10 and 151.11.

    I wonder if this could be applied yo the Salton Sea ,since the Trump administration is not going to do anything for the 100,000 that live there because they voted democratic and the border at Mexicali will block off the New and Alamo river which will not allow water for agriculture for six tribes.
