Nelson Timber Settlement Announcement


The White Earth Tribal Council is pleased to inform you that the Nelson Act, H.R. 1272, passes the United Stated Senate on September 22, 2012, and President Obama then signed the bill into law on Oct. 5, 2012. 

Our goal at White Earh is to distribute the per capita checks by Dec. 15, 2012.  We are thankful White Earth held out for per capita rather than the distribution of one sixth equally among the six bands of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe (MCT).  We worked hard in Washington D.C., for the passage of this act.
