This resolution adopted by the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation on December 14, 1950 addresses the allocation of funds set aside to compensate for the taking of land for construction of the Garrison Dam per US Public Law 437. The resolution states that US Public Law 437 outlines that the money set aside for the taking was specifically for displaced tribal members. As such, the resolution holds that no part of the money offered in compensating for the taking of land should be paid to any non-tribal members. The resolution is signed by Three Affiliated Tribes Tribal Secretary George Gillette, Chairman Martin Cross, and Fort Berthold Agency Superintendent R. W. Quinn. A handwritten note on the resolution reads, "Fort Berthold."
