The migratory Kickapoo Indians, who have been living in huts of cardboard and cane, have moved a step closer toward possession of 125 acres of land. Tribe representatives and federal government officials spent the weekend in Eagle Pass, Tex., matching Indians’ names with 72 lots on the tract, which was bought through charity donations. About 760 Kickapoos are living in the huts along a river and in another reservation, Nacimiento, near Musquiz, Mexico. “The new land is beautiful,” Nakai Breen, a spokeswoman for the Texas Band of Kickapoo, said.
