DOJ Says CRIT Boundaries Spread Into California

The U.S. Department of Justice has once again confirmed the Federal Government's long-standing position that the Colorado River Indian Tribes' reservation boundaries spread into California.

In a letter from the Department of Justice to Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack, the Department of Justice states that if any residents leasing CRIT land in California "wish to continue to occupy this land, they must have a valid lease and make payments pursuant to that lease."

CRIT and the Federal Government have long agreed that the CRIT Reservation's boundaries stretch into California, and include lands being leased from the Tribes by private individuals.
