The White Earth Reservation Land Settlement Act of 1985, Public Law 99-264 (100 Stat. 61) as amended by Public Law 100-153 (101 Stat. 886), Public Law 100-212 (101 Stat. 1433), and Public Law 101-301 (104 Stat. 210), provides for alternative methods of resolving disputes relative to the title to certain allotments for which trust patents were issued to White Earth Chippewa Indians. Section 4(a) and 4(b) of the Act define circumstances by which the title to an allotment may have been taken or transferred through questionable means during the trust period. The Act authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to: (1) Identify the allotments or interest therein which were taken or transferred under identified circumstances, (2) determine the individuals entitled to compensation pursuant to the Act, and (3) ascertain the amount of compensation to which each such individual is entitled.

In addition, section 5(c) of the Act provides that the White Earth Band of Chippewa Indians shall be compensated for allotments which were granted to individuals who had died prior to the selection dates of their respective allotments.

Under Section 8(a) of the Act, the compensation for the taking or transfer of an allotment or interest is to be based on the fair market value of the allotment or interest therein as of the date of such taking or transfer, less any consideration actually received at the time. The compensation to be paid under the Act shall include interest compounded annually at 5 percent from the date of the questionable taking or transfer, until March 24, 1986, and at the general rate of interest earned by Department of the Interior funds thereafter. The Secretary is authorized to issue written notices of compensation determination for the allottees or heirs entitled thereto. Such notice shall describe the basis for the Secretary's determination, the process whereby such compensation was determined, the method of payment, Start Printed Page 10632and the applicable time limits for judicial review of the determination. Any individual who has already elected to file suit in the Federal District Court for the District of Minnesota to seek the recovery of title to an allotment or interest therein, or damages, is barred under section 6(c) from receiving any compensation under the Act.

The Secretary shall give written notice only to those allottees or heirs whose addresses can be ascertained by reasonable and diligent efforts; otherwise such notice shall be given by publication in the Federal Register.

The Secretary's administrative determination of the appropriate amount of compensation computed pursuant to the provisions of the Act may be judicially reviewed pursuant to the Administrative Procedure Act not later than one hundred and eighty days after the issuance of notice as aforesaid; after such time the Secretary's determination shall be conclusive and all judicial reviews shall be barred. Exclusive jurisdiction over any such action is hereby vested in the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota.

The Secretary of the Interior shall then make a diligent effort to locate each allottee or heir; however, if after two years from the date on which a determination becomes conclusive an allottee or heir cannot be located the Secretary of the Interior shall declare the amount owing to such allottee or heir forfeit.

This notice is published in the exercise of authority delegated by the Secretary of the Interior to the Assistant Secretary—Indian Affairs by 209 DM 8.
