Description

Section 2 of this draft deals with Extinguishment of Claims (what is now found in 25 U.S.C. 1723). Section 2 extinguishes claims involving transfers of lands or waters (or rights to their use). Section 3 provides a remedy against the U.S. for damages related to the extinguished claims. Section 2 does not "constitute a finding that any [federal laws] were applicable to any such transfer." Section 4 of this draft deals with Application of State Law (an early version of what we now know as 25 U.S.C. 1725). What we know today as 25 U.S.C. 1735(b) is not yet included.
