Title
Santa Rosa Band of Cahuilla Indians of the Santa Rosa Reservation APNs: 636-310-001, 002, 003; 636-320-003, 004, 005; 636-310-008
Description
Trust acquisition of the subject property is needed in order for the tribe to promote the Tribe's exercise of self-determination and tribal sovereignty. The property borders the Santa Rosa Indian Reservation and is located within an historic tribal area that the Cahuilla have occupied for ~1,000 years. Given the long-term presence of the Tribe and its ancestors the Tribe intends to promote, protect and preserve wildlife, the environmental and cultural values of this property and other nearby tribal lands. To this end, placement of the property in trust status is needed to enable the Tribe to serve as a sovereign steward of its historic homeland to govern and exercise jurisdiction over tribal lands. Trust status of the property will reduce the risk of State or County policies adversely affecting tribal governmental and cultural use of its own lands and will offer protection from the land being adversely possessed or subject to the State's powers of eminent domain. The subject property is contiguous to the Santa Rosa Indian Reservation which is home to the Santa Rosa tribal community. Trust status will also enable the Tribe to exercise self-determination and will allow tribal members to use the property as tribal land consistent with tribal policy.
