Agreements signed in 1977, including subsequent amendments, allow the Tribe and the City of Palm Springs to work closely together on development projects on reservation lands. These agreements define the process by which development projects on the reservation are reviewed.
Throughout the geographical area of Palm Springs runs a series of "checkerboard" square miles designated as reservation land. This land includes three types of ownerships:
- Tribal Trust
- Allotted to a Tribal Member (and either leased or not leased)
- Fee Land
A Land Status map provided by the Tribe shows the most recent ownership status.
