Indian Claims Commission Decisions

“The Indian Claims Commission was created by the Act of August 13, 1946 (605 Stat. 1060, 25 USC 70a et seq.) to hear claims of ‘any Indian tribe, band, or other identifiable group of American Indians’ against the United States. The Act provides broad grounds for recovery, including claims based on ‘unconscionable consideration’ for tribal lands which were taken and ‘claims based on fair and honorable dealing not recognized by any existing rule of law or equity.'” (From the Index to Indian Claims Commission Decisions.)
