Klamath Tribes address land restoration proposal
Wednesday, November 12, 2003

The Klamath Tribes of Oregon held a forum Monday night to discuss a proposal to reclaim 690,000 acres of lost land.

When the tribes were terminated by the federal government, they lost their reservation. The land is now located within a national forest.

Tribal leaders have been working with the Bush administration on a plan to reclaim the land. But some environmentalists are opposing the transfer. Residents also have doubts, The Klamath Falls Herald and News reported.
