Coeur d'Alene Tribe received $18M as part of trust settlement

The Coeur d'Alene Tribe of Idaho received $18 million as part of a trust fund settlement with the Obama administration.

The tribe received the money last month. But the tribe isn't saying how it will be used.

"The tribe considers its use of the settlement proceeds as confidential," Helo Hancock, the tribe's legislative director, told The Coeur d'Alene Press.

Back in April, Chief J. Allan, the tribe's chairman, participated in an event at the White House to announce $1 billion in tribal trust settlements.
