This letter, dated January 14, 1952, from United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick to Oscar Berg, Percy Rush, Rufus Stevenson, and Jim Blackdog (also known as James Black Dog) of Elbowoods, North Dakota on the Fort Berthold Reservation, concerns the Tribal Business Council of the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation. Burdick writes that if the recipients feel the Tribal Council is violating its constitution or bylaws, they could file a petition with the Secretary of the Interior. Burdick adds that they have a right to choose an attorney separate from the Tribal Council attorney, and that he believes the US Secretary of the Interior would provide reasonable compensation for such an attorney.
