The Western Oregon Tribal Fairness Act was passed and signed into law in January of 2018. Title II of the Act conveyed portions of federal lands, previously managed by the Bureau of Land Management, into trust for the benefit of the Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw Indians (CTCLUSI). These conveyed lands consist of seven parcels totaling 14,742 acres. Dispersed throughout the ancestral territory of CTCLUSI, each of these tracts is culturally and/or economically significant and will play a vital role in promoting Tribal self-determination and sovereignty. These lands, now held in trust by the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), will be managed in accordance with applicable federal and tribal law, according to the desires of the Tribal Membership.
