Description

This letter, dated January 28, 1947, from G. Lyman and Einer Alderin of Stanton, North Dakota, to United States Senator William Langer asks for information regarding the proposal for lands they farm along the Missouri River to be used as lieu lands to compensate members of the Three Affiliated Tribes of Fort Berthold, North Dakota for lands lost due to the construction of the Garrison Dam. The authors indicate their reluctance regarding any plan for their land to revert back to tribal ownership, and thus "favor a restudy of the the 'Missouri River Development Plan' . . . namely for one reason--"Civil Rights" of Indians and white man alike are being infringed upon under [the] present plan."
