Description

This letter, from United States (UIS) Representative Usher Burdick to North Dakota Public Health Officer Russel O. Saxvik refers to Saxvik's letter of February 5 enclosing a resolution by the North Dakota Indian Affairs Commission regarding the transfer of the Indian Bureau hospitals to the US Public Health Service.

Burdick explains that he is "in favor of any program that will serve the best interest of the Indians and which will work toward their assimilation into the community life of the Whites," and that will "improve conditions for them, be it their health, income or freedom from supervision of the Indian Bureau and make them self-sustaining, self-respecting and respected members of the communities in which they live."
