Description

This letter, dated May 10, 1957, from United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick to the Special Assistant for Legislative Liaison conveys that the Three Affiliated Tribes are having trouble traversing their reservation due to the reservoir created by the completion of the Garrison Dam which cuts sections of the reservation off from one another. Individuals are forced to make a 150 mile trip to go around the lake. Burdick inquires if any barges are available to be made of service to the tribes to help them with transportation on their reservation.
