This letter, dated March 15, 1952, from H. F. Gierke Jr. of Watford City, North Dakota to United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick remarks on the call for an investigation of the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation and discusses several issues related to the Three Affiliated Tribes. Gierke says that he owns land on the reservation and therefore has an interest in happenings on the reservation. Gierke talks about how he sees tribal members on the reservation spending their money and talks about land sales. He also comments on the location of the new agency, presumably the Indian Agency.
