Description

This copy of a telegram dated June 5, 1954 from Three Affiliated Tribes Tribal Chairman Martin Cross to United States (US) Senator William Langer urgently requests that Langer prevent oil and gas leases on lands taken from the Three Affiliated Tribes under US Public Law 437 (The Taking Act) for the construction of the Garrison Dam. Cross indicates that oil companies are looking to lease these lands through the US Bureau of Land Management and Cross requests that these applications be held without action until US Senate Bill 2812 (S. 2812) passes.
