DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR

Executive Council
Miccosukee Tribe of Seminole Indians


Attention: Mr. Buffalo Tiger

Gentlemen:

Assistant Secretary Roger Ernst has reported to me on his discussions with your representatives. I am pleased to hear that progress has been made in these discussions and am looking for an early solution of all outstanding problems.

This series of conferences, I am sure, has made it clear to your representatives that the Department of the Interior recognizes you as the spokesmen of a duly recognized Tribe of American Indians. This relationship was clearly described in Commissioner Emmons' letter to you dated January 22, 1958. I personally confirm, and approve of, this approach in handling the relationships between your Tribe and the Federal Government.

Our consideration of the matters you have presented during these discussions will be expedited. You can expect to hear from us in the very near future.

Sincerely yours,

Secretary of the Interior
