Indian Land Consolidation Lien Removal and Acquisition Fund 

AGENCY: Bureau of Indian Affairs, Interior.

ACTION: Notice of tribal consultation.


SUMMARY: This notice announces that the Department of the Interior 
(Department) is hosting a tribal consultation session regarding lien 
removal and Acquisition Fund disposition under the Indian Land 
Consolidation Program (ILCP).

DATES: The tribal consultation session will be held Thursday, June 9, 
2016, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Written comments must be received by June 
17, 2016.

ADDRESSES: The tribal consultation session will be held in the Little 
Crow Room at Mystic Lake Casino-Hotel, 2400 Mystic Lake Blvd. NW., 
Prior Lake, MN 55372. Please address written comments to 
[email protected] or to: ILCP Waiver Comments, 1849 C Street NW., MS

[email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Several tribes own interests in trust land 
that are subject to a lien held by the Department under the Indian Land 
Consolidation Act (Act). These tribes had participated in the ILCP to 
acquire individually owned interests and consolidate them into tribal 
ownership. The ILCP is no longer in operation, but the liens remain, 
and the revenue proceeds continue accruing to the Acquisition Fund. 
Likewise, funds remain in Acquisition Fund depository accounts. The 
Department seeks to consult with those Tribes that have ILCP liens and 
requests their input on its proposal to: (1) Remove existing liens on 
revenue accruing from land interests that tribes have purchased under 
the ILCP, and (2) dispose of the proceeds on deposit remaining in the 
Acquisition Fund by transferring the funds (segregated by tribe) to 
each impacted tribe's trust account, to be used by the tribe to 
purchase additional on-reservation fractionated interests in parcels.

    Dated: May 5, 2016.
Lawrence S. Roberts,
Acting Assistant Secretary--Indian Affairs.
