Description

This letter dated August 27, 1946, from Floyd Montclair of the National American Indian Association to United States (US) Senator William Langer and US Commissioner of Indian Affairs William Brophy, draws attention to Langer and Brophy to the “per capita payment to each individual Indian entitled thereto,” as called forth by the US Congress and introduced by US Congressperson Usher Burdick. The payment is a $400,000 award. Montclair proposes this money could be drawn from the US Treasury or the First National Bank for remittance to the Fort Berthold Indians along with how a Tribal Council represents the will of the registered districts for payment.
