Description

This letter from Commissioner of the United States Indian Affairs D.S. Meyer to United States Representative Usher L. Burdick dated August 8, 1950, states that Meyer understands Burdick’s “support of the objectives as set forth in the resolution of the Advisory Committee of the Turtle Mountain Chippewas. It discusses the matter of employment and urges that projects be set up as enumerated to provide employment for the fall and winter.” The letter states that with the passage of the appropriation act, “Indian Service funds will be available for carrying on some road work on the reservation.” The letter states that other projects will require specific appropriations since there is no money for such activities. The letter concludes that the Aberdeen office of the United States Indian Affairs will do everything possible to assist in placeing “these Indians in available jobs.” The letter is marked with the handwritten annotation “Indians.”
