                               BACKGROUND AND NEED FOR LEGISLATION
                     In 1834, with the enactment of the Non-intercourse Act (R.S.
                   2116, 25 U.S.C. 177), land transactions with Indians were prohib-
                   ited unless authorized by Congress. Over time, such restrictions
                   came to apply primarily to lands held in trust by the United States

                   land title held in fee by Indians or tribes subject to a restriction
                   on alienation (restricted fee lands).
                     In 1955, Congress passed what is commonly known as the Indian
                   Long-Term Leasing Act of 1955 (ILTLA, 25 U.S.C. 415) to soften
                   the effect of the Non-Intercourse Act. The ILTLA generally author-
                   izes any Indian lands (in trust or in restricted fee status) to be
                   leased by their Indian owners, subject to the approval of the Sec-
