Indian lands, whether tribally held or allotted, can be leased. Until 2000, all leases required approval of the Secretary of the Interior. Approval is now needed only for leases that have terms longer than 7 years. Unless there is a specific act of Congress affecting a particular reservation, the maximum term for leases is 25 years with a 25 years renewal period. On some reservations, like the Agua Caliente Reservation, which encompasses most of the Palm Springs area, leases can extend up to 99 years. Downtown Palm Springs, including the major hotels, is located on leased land, as are several housing developments.
