Oregon’s senior Senator, Ron Wyden, is mulling the possibility of ceding control of 30,000 acres of federal timberlands to Indian tribes in his state. Wyden’s proposal calls for transferring 15,000 acres of the O&C Lands from the Bureau of Land Management to the Bureau of Indian Affairs, to be held in trust for the Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua, and Siuslaw Indians. An additional 17,000 acres would be transferred to the control of the Cow Creek Band of the Umpqua Tribe of Indians.
