Opinion: Groups spread false information about Chumash Tribe

"The Capitol Weekly recently published another commentary attacking the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians.

The latest assault concerns 1,400 acres the tribe owns in Santa Barbara County and wants to place into federal trust. The goal is to build homes for tribal families on land under the jurisdiction of the tribal government.

It's that simple.

But this hasn't stopped a small group of individuals - who use different organizational names depending on what suits them best at the moment - from spreading misinformation."
