Description

This letter, dated February 2, 1954, from Joseph Packineau of Elbowoods, ND, of the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Forth Berthold Reservation, to United States (US) Senator William Langer begins with Packineau explaining that there is a problem on the reservation: Fort Berthold Indian Agency superintendent Ben Reifel has been transferred to the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. Packineau writes that acting superintendent Ralph W. Shane has served as acting superintendent whenever Reifel has been away, and that Shane has done a good job, is well-liked by the people and "really understands" the needs and wants of the people on the reservation.

Packineau then asks Langer to "use the Old Langer fighting power" to get Shane appointed as superintendent of the Fort Berhold Indian Agency, adding, "Bill, you have to act fast if you please."
