Description

This report submitted by the United States (US) Senate Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs, dated September 1, 1959, was written to accompany Senate Bill 1352 which proposed (with the consent of the Three Affiliated Tribes tribal council) to authorize enrolled tribal members to acquire tribal lands. 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 provides a summary of the purpose of the bill along with proposed amendments to the bill. This bill did not become public law.
