New York Indian Law
Sec. § 95
Allotment of Lands


The chiefs or head men of the Tuscarora nation of Indians in the county of Niagara, in council, shall allot and set apart for any Indian or Indian family, making application and not possessing land, so much of the tribal lands as they shall deem reasonable and just; and no tribal lands shall be appropriated by any Indian to his own use, without such consent and allotment. Such chiefs, in council, may appoint a clerk, who shall enter in a book kept for that purpose, every allotment of tribal lands, set apart for any Indian or Indian family, and of the part thereof from which such Indian or family may sell timber and trees, and of the part he is permitted to clear for the purposes of cultivation.
