                                         REPORT

                                         [To accompany H.R. 2606]
                            [Including cost estimate of the Congressional Budget Office]
                    The Committee on Indian Affairs, to which was referred the bill
                    (H.R. 2606) to amend the Act of August 4, 1947 (commonly known
                    as the Stigler Act), with respect to restrictions applicable to Indi-
                    ans of the Five Civilized Tribes of Oklahoma, and for other pur-
                  poses, having considered the same, reports favorably thereon with-
                  out amendment and recommends the bill do pass.
                                             PURPOSE
                    The purpose of H.R. 2606, is to amend certain provisions of the
                  Act of August 4, 1947 (commonly referred to as the Stigler Act)
                  with respect to the restricted fee status of land allotted to members
                  of the Five Civilized Tribes of Oklahoma. Specifically, H.R. 2606
                  amends the Stigler Act to remove a one half-degree Indian blood
                  quantum requirement for tribal member allotted lands to retain
                  their restricted status.
                                           BACKGROUND
                    Oklahoma is home to 38 federally-recognized Indian tribes. A
                  majority of these tribes were forcibly removed from their tradi-
                  tional homelands to what is now known as the State of Oklahoma
                  during the early to mid-1800's. Among the first tribes relocated
                  were the Choctaw, Chickasaw, Mvskoke (Creek), Cherokee, and
                  Seminole, which are sometimes referred to as the Five Civilized
                  Tribes (the Five Tribes).
