dian Affairs have recommended be granted;

Now, therefore, by virtue of the authority contained in section 3 of the Act of June 18, 1934 (48 Stat. 984; 25 U.S.C. 463), I hereby find that the restoration to tribal ownership of the lands hereinafter described in this paragraph will be in the public interest, and the said lands are hereby restored to tribal ownership of the Fort Belknap Indian Community of the Fort Belknap Reservation, Mont., subject to any valid existing rights and the Departmental Order of May 17, 1923, is hereby revoked insofar as it affects the following-described lands:

PRINCIPAL MERIDIAN, MONTANA

T. 26 N., R. 23 E., sec. 24:

[blocks in formation]

Whereas, pursuant to the provisions of the Act of May 27, 1902 (32 Stat. 263), as amended and supplemented by the Acts of March 3, 1903 (32 Stat. 998); April 21, 1904 (33 Stat. 207); March 3, 1905 (33 Stat. 1069); and May 14, 1920 (41 Stat. 599); most of the unallotted lands of the Uintah and Ouray Indian Reservation in Utah were restored to the public domain with the proceeds from the sale of said lands to be used for the benefit of the Indians;

Whereas, pursuant to joint resolution of the 57th Congress, first session, dated June 19, 1902 (Public Resolution No. 31; 32 Stat. 744), certain lands on said reservation were set apart for a grazing reserve; Whereas, pursuant to a recommendation from the Commissioner of Indian Affairs dated June 7, 1905, the Secretary of the Interior on July 11, 1905, established a timber reserve for the use and benefit of the Ute Indians of the Uintah and Ouray Reservation;

Whereas, pursuant to the authority of the Act of June 25, 1910 (36 Stat. 847; 43 U.S.C. 141-142), Executive Order No. 5327, dated April 15, 1930, withdrew from disposal all deposits of oil shale and the lands containing said deposits owned by the United States from lease or other disposal and reserved the same for investigation, examination, and classification;

Whereas, by Order of the Secretary of the Interior dated August 25, 1945 (10 F.R. 12409), all of the undisposed-of opened lands of said reservation, including undisposed-of opened lands containing deposits of oil shale, were restored to tribal ownership pursuant to the Act of June 18, 1934 (48 Stat. 984);

Whereas, lands withdrawn pursuant to said Executive Order No. 5327 are identified by Public Land Order No. 4522 of September 24, 1968;

Whereas, some of the lands so listed in said Public Land Order No. 4522 included (1) said grazing reserve; (2) said timber reserve; (3) lands allotted to individual Indians; and (4) lands restored by said August 25, 1945, order;

Whereas, no authority existed for an oil shale withdrawal of any allotted lands on the reservation; however, the identification of said allotted lands as oil shale lands served to cloud the title to those lands, which cloud should be removed;

Whereas, Executive Order No. 5327 of April 15, 1930, withdrawing oil shale lands as identified by Public Land Order No. 4522 also creates a cloud on the title of the lands held by the United States of America in trust for the Ute Indian Tribe or held by the Tribe's successors in interest;

Whereas, the Uintah and Ouray Tribal Business Committee of the Ute Indian Tribe has petitioned the Secretary to remove the cloud on the tribe to its lands by revoking said oil shale withdrawal as it applies to lands on said reservation;

Whereas, it is in the best interests of the public and the Ute Indian Tribe to restore any remaining undisposed-of open land on said reservation existing subsequent to said revocation;

Whereas, the superintendent of the Uintah and Ouray Reservation, the area director of the Phoenix Area Office, and the Commissioner of Indian Affairs have recommended that such petition be granted;

Now therefore, by virtue of the authority vested in the President of the United States by Section 1 of the Act of June 25, 1910 (36 Stat. 847; 43 U.S.C. 141), and pursuant to Executive Order No. 10355 of May 26, 1952 (17 F.R. 4831), it is hereby ordered that the Oil Shale Withdrawal of April 15, 1930 (Executive Order No. 5327), is hereby revoked insofar as it pertains to the following lands, all of which are located within the Uintah Special Base and Meridian survey: (1) all lands held in trust by the United States for the Ute Indian Tribe of the Uintah and Ouray Indian Reservation, Utah; (2) all lands held in trust by the United States for individual Indian allottees, their heirs or assigns; (3) all lands conveyed pursuant to the acts of June 18, 1934 (48 Stat. 984); and August 27, 1954 (68 Stat. 868); (4) all lands owned by the United States in which the Ute Indian Tribe of the Uintah and Ouray Reservation, Utah, has an interest in the proceeds from lease, sale, or other disposition; (5) the lands within the Forest and Grazing Reserves which are held in trust by the United States for the Ute Indian Tribe of the Uintah and Ouray Indian Reservation; (6) the lands, including lands containing deposits of oil shale, restored to tribal ownership by the Order of August 25, 1945; and (7) all lands described below, some of which are included in the prior categories:
