This report from the United States (US) Senate Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs, dated March 9, 1956, was written to accompany Senate Bill 1528 which primarily proposed to authorize enrolled members of the Three Affiliated Tribes of Fort Berthold Reservation to acquire trust interests in the tribal land of the Fort Berthold Reservation. Many who were relocated due to the construction of the Garrison Dam did not have adequate funds to reestablish themselves in their new location. Since it is prohibited to sell the tribal lands of an organized tribe, US Senate Bill 1528 would allow for individual tribal members to purchase tribal land to establish farms or ranches. This report includes an explanation of US Senate Bill 1528 and proposed amendments to the bill. This bill did not become law.
