Description

This report from the United States (US) Senate Select Committee on Indian Affairs, dated November 19, 1987, includes a hearing transcript regarding the status of the Three Affiliated Tribes and the Standing Rock Nation in terms of just compensation for their taken lands. The hearing covers debate among the committee members regarding additional compensation for the tribes and it includes statements from members of the Three Affiliated Tribes and the Standing Rock Nation. Some committee members express concern about the amount of compensation requested for the tribes and the means of producing those funds. The issue of unfulfilled promises made by the United States government to the tribes prior to removal from their land is discussed. Included in the report are prepared statements from tribal members, letters from the department of the interior and the civil works department of the army, and The Taken Land booklet.
