     Stop the Lake Sakakawea Land Grab


     In 1947, construction on the Garrison Dam began. A part of the Missouri River Basin Project, the dam would result in the creation of Lake Sakakawea and the taking of communities, farms, and businesses through eminent domain. Approximately 80 percent of the tribal members lived in soon to be flooded areas, and were forced to relocate. This area represented 25 percent of the reservation, and provided the most fertile farming areas.
