This handwritten letter, likely from 1952, from Three Affiliated Tribes member Martin Fox to United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick expresses concern about tribal members being uninformed of events occurring on the reservation and with the tribal council. The Tribal Council has gone to Washington, D.C. and Fox says that it's not clear why. Fox also references investigators who came to the reservation. Fox wanted to speak with them but was not allowed.
