Description

This letter dated April 14, 1950, from Executive Director of North Dakota Indian Affairs John B. Hart to United States Senator William Langer requests Langer to “kick the Indian Bureau in the bottom sufficiently” to see if the Indian Bureau plans on purchasing land outside of the Fort Berthold Reservation boundaries. The letter excerpts a March 27, 1950, telegram where Hart attempts to contact John Nichols concerning the Indian Bureau’s plans on purchasing land outside of the Fort Berthold Reservation boundaries. Hart alerts Langer that he has not received an answer or a notice that marks a receipt from Nichols. The letter asks Langer to “kick the Indian Bureau in the bottom sufficiently” to get this information.
