From Indigenous Peoples Issues and Resources Facebook Page:
On this day (February 5) in 1948 the US Congress passed legislation (25 USC 323) empowering the Secretary of the Interior to grant rights-of-way for various purposes across Native American lands.
The legislation grants for all purposes over and across any lands held in trust by the United States for individual Indians or Indian tribes, communities, bands, or nations, or any lands owned, subject to restrictions against alienation, by individual Indians or Indian tribes, communities, bands, or nations, including the lands belonging to the Pueblo Indians in New Mexico, and any other lands acquired or set aside for the use and benefit of the Indians. In some instances, the legislation gives the Secretary of the Interior power to grant rights-of-way without the permission of the tribe. The full suite of regulations promulgated by the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) under this legislation is available at 25 CFR 169.
