I. Abstract

BIA is seeking renewal of the approval for the information collection conducted under 25 CFR 161, implementing the Navajo-Hopi Indian Relocation Amendments Act of 1980, 94 Stat. 929, and the Federal court decisions of Healing v. Jones, 174 F. Supp. 211 (D. Ariz. 1959) (Healing I), Healing v. Jones, 210 F. Supp. 126 (D. Start Printed Page 32274Ariz. 1962), aff'd 363 U.S. 758 (1963) (Healing II), Hopi Tribe v. Watt, 530 F. Supp. 1217 (D. Ariz. 1982), and Hopi Tribe v. Watt, 719 F.2d 314 (9th Cir. 1983).

This information collection allows BIA to receive the information necessary to determine whether an applicant to obtain, modify, or assign a grazing permit on Navajo Partitioned Lands is eligible and complies with all applicable grazing permit requirements. This renewal includes changes to the Navajo Partitioned Lands: Grazing Permit (Form 5-5015), to make the guidance and instructions clear and easy to understand.
