The Claim

(p.107) Chapter Six The Claim
Claiming Turtle Mountain's Constitution

Keith Richotte Jr.

University of North Carolina Press

Chapter six describes the community’s strong desire for a claim against the United States and the various efforts toward a claim, beginning shortly after the establishment of the reservation and continuing through the ratification of the constitution. In the wake of the disastrous establishment of the reservation and the negotiations and enactment of the Ten-Cent Treaty, the people of Turtle Mountain developed a single political goal that united different factions within the community: establishing a lawsuit against the federal government. As number of obstacles made it impossible to file a suit, the desire to sue the federal government grew at Turtle Mountain. This chapter traces that growing desire and multiple efforts.
