Description

This report, dated January 12, 1954, from John Cragun to the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation gives an update on the status of the Reservation's claims to the Indian Claims Commission. The report reiterates that Crogun's firm expects the Claims Commission to rely on the outcome of the Blackfeet case to decide the Fort Berthold claim. The report also summarizes Fort Berthold's claim, which has to do with damages sustained for the delay between the time their lands were taken and the time the Court of Claims awarded them payment. The letter concludes by saying that the firm expects a decision from the Court of Claims soon. See related docs "Report by Wilkinson, Boyden, Cragun, and Barker on the Status of the Fort Berthold Claims, June 22, 1953" and " Letter from Mrs. John Sitting Crow to Representative Burdick Regarding Fort Berthold Claims, February 25, 1954"
