WASHINGTON D.C.- The Quechan Indian Tribe is part a more than $1 billion settlement with 41 tribes and the United States.
In the lawsuits filed against the U.S. by the tribes, it alleges the Department of the Interior and the Department of the Treasury mismanaged monetary assets and natural resources held in trust by the government for the benefit of the tribes.
Wednesday's announcement followed a 22-month-long negotiation.
These settlements resolve claims dating back more than 100 years.
