Description

This letter, dated February 15, 1956, from United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick to Glenn Emmons, Commissioner at the US Bureau of Indian Affairs, relays that members of the Three Affiliated Tribes are opposed to the bill and that there appears to be a conflict between what many tribal members want and what the Tribal Business Council is advocating for. The letter indicates that the US Bureau of Indian Affairs has recommended passage of the bill, but Burdick asks that Emmons look into the issue further. A handwritten note at the top of the letter mentions Walter Plenty Chief, Sr. and Frank Heart.
