California Tribe Gives $5 Million For ASU Program, Building

San Manuel Band of Mission Indians

A California-based Native American community has given Arizona State University $5 million to help renovate a historic downtown Los Angeles building used by the school and to set up an endowment for an Indian law program.

About half the gift from the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians will go toward the Herald Examiner Building.  The ornate, 1914 building is part of the university's Los Angeles expansion.

The rest will go toward the endowment to support Indian Gaming and Tribal Self-Governance programs that are a part of the broader Indian Legal Program at ASU's law school.
