Description

This letter, dated March 17, 1954, from United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick to William J. Deane of Elbowoods, ND on the Fort Berthold Reservation concerns the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation's claims before the Court of Claims. Burdick writes that there are no copies of the Fort Berthold hearings available and that the Fort Berthold case will likely be decided the same as the Blackfeet case, which has just been decided in favor of the US Government. Burdick adds that he is enclosing a copy of the opinion in that case. This enclosed copy was not found with this document in the Usher Burdick papers.
