Description

This report from the United States (US) House Committee of Conference, dated July 26, 1947, was written to accompany US House Resolution 4002 which appropriated funds for the US War Department for fiscal year ending June 30, 1948. The report included an amendment pertaining to the relocation of the Three Affiliated Tribes of Fort Berthold Reservation due to the completion of the Garrison Dam flooding their homelands. The amendment states that the Three Affiliated Tribes may pursue legal action for additional damages incurred from the taking of their lands or for any treaty violations not adequately compensated for by the $5,105,625 settlement. US House Resolution 4002 became US Public Law 80-296 on July 31,1947.
