The Torres-Martinez Indian Tribe have yet to be compensated for land they lost almost ninety years ago. Mary Bono's new bill may fix that.
The Torres-Martinez Band of Desert Cahuilla Indians may, after nearly ninety years of negotiations, be compensated for the land they lost to the Salton Sea in 1909. Rep. Mary Bono is sponsoring a bill which would allow them to buy land in Coachella to be used to build a casino. The Cabazon Band of Mission Indians are the main opponents of the bill, claiming it will affect the Fantasy Springs Casino they presently operate nearby.
