The report that "the Kumeyaay tribes" oppose the Ocotillo Express Wind Project is in error. There are 12 Kumeyaay bands or federally recognized tribes. Of these, four Kumeyaay tribes have modern and historical affiliations with Tribal Cultural Properties in the Project area (Ewiiaapaayp, Campo, La Posta and Manzanita). The Project will not physically impact any TCP in the Project area. The Ewiiaapaayp Tribe supports the Project and the efforts to project and preserve the TCP in and near the Project area that are available only should the Project move ahead. The Ewiiaapaayp Tribe has met many times with the Project proponent, Pattern Energy, and consulted with the Bureau of Land Management, and is satisfied with compliance with all applicable federal statutes and regulations.
