DOI signs Cobell buy-back agreements with two more tribes


The Interior Department signed two more cooperative agreements for the Land Buy-Back Program for Tribal Nations.

The Round Valley Indian Tribes of California and the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians in North Dakota are the latest to join the effort. The tribes will help inform landowners about the program in order to facilitate potential sales of their fractional interests.

“Federal and tribal partners must do all we can to give landowners a meaningful chance to participate in this unique Program and receive compensation for their fractional interests,” said Deputy Secretary Michael Connor said in a press release. “We welcome the active participation of the Round Valley Indian Tribes and the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians, which will be critical to the success of implementing the Buy-Back Program at their locations.
