One Hundred Million Acres, Volume 1
MacMillan Publishing Company, 1973 - Indians of North America - 240 pages
Indians from Alaska to Texas, from New York to California, are now claiming lands that are rightfully and legally theirs. Denying its own legal system, the federal government disputes Indian ownership of approximately one hundred million acres, which include presently held tribal lands and individually owned Indian lands; the Alaskan Settlement; administrative, submarginal, restoration, and surplus federal lands; and those lands belonging to terminated and nonfederal tribes.
