Summary:

Between 1998 and 2007, Native American tribes bought over 840,000 acres of land and put it into trust. Tribes tired of waiting to resolve claims over land with the federal government under treaties dating back as far as the 1700s. The Associated Press used FOIA to obtain the information from the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
