    In 2004, Arizona’s Havasupai Tribe filed a lawsuit against the Arizona Board of Regents of the Arizona State University for blood samples that were taken from tribal members between 1990 and 1992. The samples were supposedly to be used to study diabetes among the Havasupai people, but were actually used to study other issues. The tribe won, and will be paid $700,000 and will receive various scholarships, a high school, and a medical clinic. The blood samples will also be returned to the tribe.
