Description

This letter dated April 14, 1950, from Executive Director of North Dakota Indian Affairs John B. Hart to United States (US) Senator William Langer quotes a telegram Hart sent to John Nichols, Commissioner of the US Bureau of Indian Affairs on March 27, 1950 asking whether the Bureau plans to purchase land outside of the Fort Berthold Reservation boundaries, and if so what the tax status of the land would be. Hart writes that he has not received an answer or a notice of receipt from Nichols, and asks Langer to “kick the Indian Bureau in the bottom sufficiently” to get this information.
