Puyallup Tribal Administration

Indian tribes in the Northwest will be getting an infusion of cash. It’s part of a nearly $1 billion settlement the federal government recently reached with tribes across the nation. The settlement with the tribes is restitution for decades of underpayment by the federal government for tribal administration of contracts for such things as health care and social services. In all, tribes in Washington, Oregon and Idaho will receive more than $204 million.
