ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: On February 22, 1945, the Secretary of the Interior issued an Order restoring to the Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians of Minnesota (‘‘Tribe’’) certain lands that the Tribe had previously ceded to the United States for use by non-Indians. The lands restored to the Tribe by the 1945 Order are lands that were continuously held in trust by the United States since the cessions, that were never sold or otherwise disposed of, and for which the Tribe was never paid. This notice provides a partial list of the legal descriptions of lands restored to the Tribe by the 1945 Order. The Secretary included in the 1945 Order ‘‘lands which have been assessed for drainage works by the State of Minnesota under the authority of the Volstead Act of May 20, 1908 . . . subject to any existing valid rights.’’ The Department has reviewed and resolved title issues that arose regarding applicability of the Volstead Act. Thus, without further delay, these legal descriptions are published as representing lands among the lands restored to the Tribe as trust lands. DATES: Restoration of lands was effective on February 22, 1945. asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:06 Jan 12, 2017 Jkt 241001 Bureau of Land Management, Eastern States, 20 M Street SE., Suite 950, Washington, DC 20003.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Nelson Act of January 14, 1889, ch. 24, 25 Stat. 642, created and authorized a Federal commission to negotiate a cession of lands in northern Minnesota from the Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians of Minnesota to the United States. By agreement dated July 8, 1889, 2.9 million acres of land known as ‘‘Royce 706’’ were ceded by the Tribe to the United States for the benefit of the Tribe. The Tribe retained a much smaller area known as ‘‘Royce 707.’’ On March 10, 1902, another agreement was negotiated between the Tribe and the United States for the cession of an additional 256,152 acres of land in the western portion of Royce 707. This agreement was approved, with amendments, by Congress under the Act of February 20, 1904, ch. 161, 33 Stat. 46. Consistent with the provisions of the Nelson Act, the lands the Tribe ceded to the United States were opened for timber sales and homesteading, and most of the lands were disposed of by the 1930s. The Indian Reorganization Act of 1934 (‘‘IRA’’), 25 U.S.C. 461 et seq., ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00129 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 3,500 6 75 12 10 30 30 1 38 6 7,093 Totals .................................................................................................................................... 30 ........................ 3,545 authorized the Secretary of the Interior, if he found it to be in the public interest, ‘‘to restore to tribal ownership the remaining surplus lands to any Indian reservation [that prior to June 18, 1934 were] opened, or authorized to be opened, to sale or any other form of disposal by Presidential proclamation, or by any of the public land laws of the United States[.]’’ 25 U.S.C. 463(a). On February 22, 1945, exercising this authority granted by the IRA, the Secretary of the Interior issued an Order of Restoration (‘‘1945 Order’’), 10 FR 2448 (1945). The 1945 Order ‘‘Restored to tribal ownership all those lands of the Red Lake Indian Reservation which were ceded by the Indians under [the Nelson Act and the Act of February 20, 1904] and which were opened for sale or entry but for which the Indians have not been paid and which now are or hereafter may be classified as undisposed of.’’ 10 FR at 2449. See also Act of December 4, 1942, ch. 673, 56 Stat. 1039 (‘‘All right, title, and interest of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe in and to the so-called Red Lake Indian ceded lands, including any administrative reserves, is hereby declared extinguished and title thereto vested in the Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians.’’). On May 28, 1945, the Acting Commissioner of the General Land Office forwarded to the Commissioner of the Office of Indian Affairs a list of lands that satisfied the criteria of the 1945 Order and could be returned to the Tribe. On April 29, 1946, and January 9, 1947, amendments to the list of lands were made. The list of May 28, 1945, and the amendments of April 29, 1946, and January 9, 1947 (collectively, the ‘‘1945 List’’) totaled approximately 157,499 acres of noncontiguous lands. The 1945 List was to have been published in the Federal Register to provide public notice of lands that were subject to the 1945 Order. However, shortly after the 1945 List was completed, several title and legal description problems with lands on the list were discovered, and the 1945 List E:\FR\FM\13JAN1.SGM 13JAN1
