Description

This letter dated May 23, 1950, from Executive Director of North Dakota Indian Affairs Commission John B. Hart to United States (US) Senator William Langer thanks Langer for the assistance he provided to Hart with the US Bureau of Indian Affairs regarding the proposed purchase of land outside exterior boundaries of the Fort Berthold Reservation. Hart rites that land purchases outside reservation boundaries is “a pretty hot subject” due to the way such purchases will alter property taxes and the difficulties facing future purchasers of reservation land.
