This letter dated July 9, 1947, from Walter V. Woehlke from "Forestry and Grazing" (Full Department Name not supplied) to J. E. Campbell, Deputy Commissioner of the North Dakota (ND) Game and Fish Department (Bismarck, ND), explains that United States (US) Senator William Langer has asked him to furnish Campbell with "a copy of the treaty covering the Standing Rock and Forth Berthold Indian Reservations in North Dakota."
Woehlke goes on to explain that the relevant treaties, statutes, decisions, and rulings are bound in the Statutes at Large and other volumes and are not available for distribution and suggests the State Law Library and the State Attorney General of ND as resources.
For reference citations, Woehlke recommends Felix Cohen's Handbook of Federal Indian Law and gives page numbers for sections related to Forth Berthold and Standing Rock reservations.
Woehlke also provides some general information and guidelines regarding how laws may or may not apply to tribal members and non-members on tribal and non-tribal lands.
