90,000 acres transferred into trust for Isleta Pueblo


PUEBLO OF ISLETA – A stroke of the pen enlarged the Pueblo of Isleta by 50 percent on Friday.

A signing ceremony that transferred nearly 90,000 acres into trust for Isleta lasted only minutes, but it followed an application process that began in the 1990s.

“It has been a long time coming, and it has finally happened,” Isleta Gov. E. Paul Torres said shortly after he and U.S. Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell signed the transfer papers in Isleta Village proper, about 20 miles south of Albuquerque.
