The 850 adults in the 1,500-member Puyallup Indian tribe began receiving individual $20,000 checks as part of the second largest Indian land-claims settlement in U.S. history. In exchange, the Pacific Northwest tribe agreed to drop a 1984 lawsuit claiming 160 acres of tidelands along Commencement Bay in Tacoma, Wash., the former beds of the Puyallup River and any future claim to the 18,000 acres that once made up their reservation.
