Description

This report from the United States (US) House Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs, dated May 10, 1956, was written to accompany US Senate Bill 2151 which made specifications for the allocation of funds to members of the Three Affiliated Tribes, provided as compensation for the taking of their land for the Garrison Dam project. The bill proposes that enrolled tribal members receive a per capita payment of $500 with an additional 3.9 million dollars distributed pro rata. The bill also specifies that $218,354.52 be allocated to the tribal administration and government. The specifications for the allotment of funds were approved by the tribal business council on March 25, 1955. Senate Bill 2151 became US Public Law 84-553 on June 4, 1956.
