Colville Tribes will share another $58M from trust settlement





The Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation of Washington will distribute another $58 million from its trust fund settlement.

The tribe received $193 million as part of a settlement with the Obama administration. Some $39 million, or 20 percent, was distributed on a per capita basis earlier this month.

Another $58 million, or 30 percent, will go out after tribal members approved a referendum on Friday. The total distribution represents 50 percent of the settlement.

Tribal members got $4,080 in the first payment. The second payment will be $6,100.
