Colville Tribes won't share rest of $193M trust fund settlement





The Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation of Washington won't share the remainder of a $193 million trust fund settlement.

The tribe already distributed half of the settlement on a per capita basis. Members received about $10,400 in two payments this year but that will be the end of it, Chairman John Sirois said.

The remaining funds will be used for senior centers, health clinics, resource restoration, language development and other programs, Sirois said in a press release.
