Hualapai Tribe considers per capita from $5.4M trust settlement





Leaders of the Hualapai Tribe of Arizona will meet Friday to determine what to do with a $5.4 million trust fund settlement.

Distributing the settlement on a per capita basis is one option. Each of the tribe's 2,100 members will receive about $2,500 if that happens.

One tribal member said some of the money should be invested in infrastructure.
