Description

This report from the Select Committee on Indian Affairs, dated November 26, 1991, was written to accompany United States (US) Senate Bill 168 which aimed to provide The Three Affiliated Tribes and Standing Rock Sioux with fair compensation for lands taken for construction of the Garrison Dam and Oahe Dam as well as the return of land that was taken but not used for the dam projects. The report summarizes the background and need for US Senate Bill 168, and it acknowledges that the implementation of the Pick-Sloan Plan effectively forced the Three Affiliated tribes off their land which was prime agricultural land. The report acknowledges that the Standing Rock Sioux were similarly forced off prime land within their reservation due to the Oahe Dam construction. The report further contains a summary of legislative history, including the input of the US Army Corps of Engineers and the US Bureau of Indian Affairs. It concludes with recommendations from the committee. US Senate Bill 168 was introduced but never passed the US Senate or US House.
