This undated list authored by Oscar Burr is entitled "What My People Want" and consists of a list of nine numbered items relating to what "Indian people" want. Items on the list include "Adequate standard of living" and "Termination of tax exemption for Indian lands." Oscar Burr served on the Three Affiliated Tribes Tribal Business Council from 1952-1956; this is presumably the same Oscar Burr who has authored this list. This list was filed with United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick's papers in a file labeled "Fort Berthold Indians."
