The Seattle, Washington, city council approved a $42 million land and hunting rights deal with the Muckleshoot Tribe. The settlement was reached in April. It requires the city to limit its use of water on the Cedar River, transfer 1,200 acres to the tribe and recognize the hunting rights of tribal members on the river. In return, the tribe is dropping its challenge to federal water permits sough by the city. The permits had been held up since 2000. Get the Story:
