On Wednesday, September 14, Yurok Chairman Joseph L. James informed the US Natural Resources’ Subcommittee for Indigenous Peoples of the United States about the critical importance of the Yurok lands act (H.R.7581). 

Introduced by US Congress Member Jared Huffman, the bill seeks to revise the reservation boundary line to include reacquired tribal land and facilitate the transfer of the Yurok Experimental Forest back to the Tribe, which lost more than 98 percent of its ancestral territory in the 1800s. The bill will also designate Bald Hills Road as the Yurok Scenic Byway.
