Description

This election questionnaire, dated October 25, 1954, was sent from the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation to United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick. The questionnaire inquires about Burdick's standing on issues and how he will work to help the tribes if reelected to office. The questionnaire is signed by Tribal Chairperson Martin Cross. At the top of the survey is a note on a post-it that reads, "Usher says that they should know he has always been their friend, by now."
