Description

This report from the Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs, dated May 7, 1970, was written to accompany United States (US) Senate Bill 774 which sought to authorize the US Government to mortgage tribal lands in order to provide more economic stability for the tribes. The report indicates that the tribe had still not recovered from the economic collapse that occurred after they were forced to move from their lands due to the construction of the Garrison Dam.
