Correction: The reservations in California were made by Executive Order, and not through treaties. Treaties were signed between leaders of California tribes and representatives of the Federal Government, but these representatives were followed back to DC by businessmen who successfully lobbied for the treaties to NOT be ratified. A 50 year seal was placed on the documents and these are known as "The 18 Lost Treaties of California." More information can be read here: http://www.cr.nps.gov/history/online_...
Lone Ranger, you could use a dose of book learnin’. Why don’t you invest in inquiry more and read, ask questions and learn something. Your bigotry and hatred has no place in educated debate. Come correct.

Hemroid, the idea of "ethnic purity" which underlies most of your posts is ugly. You’re a narcissist that thinks you know better and can tell everyone how to look at a situation. I know, I’ve read your hateful posts. Personally, I don’t consider blood quantum to define Chumash people. Mixing occurred before the coming of the Spanish, and the Spanish weren’t really Spanish now, were they? At the time Columbus set sail, they were a newly created nation-state after being conquered by the "Moors" for 750 years. Spanish contains a lot of Arabic. The ethnic purity filter you propose everyone see through is antiquated and, in my opinion, employed by you out of a sense of hatred and bigotry. Please give readers a break and/or come with some real opinions on the matter at hand.Fact is, the Chumash people at the Reservation are a separate nation with a government to government relation with your Federal government. The land they’ve purchased and wish to develop should not be subject to local jurisdiction, but federal. There is plenty of precedence for relations between Feds and tribes and land put into trust. If the county is going to lose some revenue, big deal.... they have plenty. "Your daddy’s rich and your ma is good lookin, so hush little baby, go ahead and cry." The Chumash should be able to thrive.
