Description

This letter, dated April 10, 1957, from Commander Theodore Bolman of the American Legion Thomas F. Badgun Post #271 to United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick encloses a resolution that the post recently presented to the Three Affiliated Tribes Tribal Business Council and to the North Dakota Governor [John Davis]. Bolman tells Burdick that he hopes Burdick will help solve some of the problems addressed in the resolution.

The resolution, which is enclosed with this document, addresses the destitution experienced by members of the Three Affiliated Tribes following their relocation from the Missouri bottomlands due to the construction of the Garrison Dam. The resolution addresses several problems and provides proposed solutions for these problems that they believe will help provide relief to the tribes. The resolution is signed by Theodore Bolman and Oscar Burr.
