Abstract:

Mimeographed copy of a typed transcript of an Apr. 3, 1916, letter from Joseph H. Choate to John H. Stephens, chairman of the House Committee on Indian Affairs, regarding legislation on Indian matters then pending in Congress.

Choate reminds Stephens of the federal government's continued responsibility to the Indians; reviews U.S. Indian policy, finding the current policy of individualization plausible if properly administered; and argues against three bills, the Hastings Bill (H.R. 108), Senate 3904, and Senate 4452, that would remove authority from the Interior Dept. and Commissioner of Indian Affairs, and place it with parties less likely to protect Indian interests. Also includes an excerpt from a Mar. 22, 1916, letter from Seneca Indian Arthur C. Parker, a prominent archaeologist, ethnologist, museum director, and authority on Indian affairs, opposing the Hastings Bill. This copy was probably received by Edward E. Ayer, then a member of the Board of Indian Commissioners.
