Description

This newsletter dated September 5, 1950, from the American Indian Fund and the Association on American Indian Affairs gives an account of the current legal status of national legislation facing indigenous peoples in the United States. Included in this newsletter is the topic entitled, “THE INDIAN BUREAU EXPERIMENTS WITH POCKET-VETO,” which outlines how the United States Indian Bureau’s “inaction is dooming the current Congress S 3303, a bill to bring some measure of of justice to the Ft. Berthold Indians, victims of the land-inundation which will follow construction of the Garrison Dam.” The newsletter states S. 3303 would assure the Fort. Berthold Reservation valuable rights which are being “needlessly and arbitrarily deprived.”
