Description

This letter, undated, is from Marie R Deane to United States (US) Senator William Langer. In it, Deane states that she, as someone of Arikara descent, does not believe that Attorney Ralph RH Case or the Tribal Council at Elbowoods are doing a good enough job representing The Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation.

Comments

Although this document is undated, it can be surmised that the letter is from around 1949. This date can be determined because Senator Langer sent a letter responding to Deane on August 5, 1949 (see "Letter from Senator Langer to Marie R Deane Regarding the Acquisition of Tribal Lands, August 5, 1949"). It is not clear that this letter is the same one that Langer was responding to at that time; however, as this letter mentions the Tribal Council at Elbowoods, it must predate the town's flooding in 1954.
