NARF’s client, the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuila Indians and their ancestors have been in Coachella Valley, California, since time immemorial. For years, the Tribe has been fighting to protect the Coachella Valley aquifer from overuse and mismanagement.  In a recent ruling, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the Tribe’s reserved right to groundwater, handing a significant victory to the Tribe. You can learn more about their case and other NARF work in the most recent edition of NARF’s Legal Review.
