[iA proposed land swap between the federal government and the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians would put parts of some of the Palm Springs area's most popular mountain trails in tribal hands, a concern for local hikers. The federal Bureau of Land Management is seeking public comments until Nov. 19 on a proposed land exchange with the Agua Caliente, in which the agency would turn about 5,800 acres over to the tribe in exchange for nearly 1,500 acres of tribal land.][/i]

I'm sure in the end it will be the Indians that get screwed.

Hiking in the glorious mountains that surround the Coachella Valley is one of the best things about living here. Understandably, the hiking community is nervous about the proposed exchange of about 5,800 acres of Bureau of Land Management property for nearly 1,500 acres of land owned by the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians. The land is part of the federally protected Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument, but land swap discussions were in progress even before the monument was established 10 years ago. This would help eliminate some of the checkerboard pattern established when President Ulysses S. Grant created the reservation in 1876.
