INDIAN LAND LAWS
BEING A TREATISE ON
INDIAN LAND TITLES IN OKLAHOMA AND UNDER THE GEN-
TED INDIAN LANDS
A COMPILATION OF TREATIES, AGREEMENTS AND
PREFACE TO SECOND EDITION
While but five years have elapsed since the publication of the first edition of Indian Land Laws, the unusually rapid development of this phase of the law of land titles in Oklahoma seems to render desirable a second edition.
In preparing the second edition, the larger part of the text has been rewritten, and the remainder revised, enlarged, and brought down to date. A much more thorough and complete consideration is given matters relating to the alienation and other disposition of allotted lands in the Cherokee, Creek, and Seminole Nations, and to descent, probate procedure, mineral leases, and taxation, than was given in the first edition. Additional subjects discussed are those of easements in Indian lands, jurisdiction of controversies affecting Indian lands, and actions affecting Indian lands.
All treaties, agreements, and legislation affecting in any manner titles to allotted Indian lands in Oklahoma, including the General Allotment Act, amendments and legislation supplemental thereto, the Arkansas Statute on conveyances and dower, and the Arkansas and Indian Statutes on descent, are reproduced in full and thoroughly annotated. This makes readily available in convenient form all legislation necessary to be considered in dealing with any matter relating to allotted Indian lands in Oklahoma.
The Index is the work of Mr. Clinton O. Bunn of the Oklahoma City Bar, and the Table of Cases of Mr. H. L. McCracken.
I desire to express to the profession my appreciation of the kindly consideration given the first edition, and to indulge in the belief and hope that I have succeeded in making a more useful book.
