                TITLE I--INDIAN FINANCING ACT AMENDMENTS

SEC. 101. <<NOTE: 25 USC 1451 note.>> SHORT TITLE.

    This Act may be cited as the ``Indian Financing Amendments Act of 
2002''.

SEC. 102. <<NOTE: 25 USC 1485 note.>> FINDINGS AND PURPOSE.

    (a) Findings.--Congress finds that--
            (1) the Indian Financing Act of 1974 (25 U.S.C. 1451 et 
        seq.) was intended to provide Native American borrowers with 
        access to commercial sources of capital that otherwise would not 
        be available through the guarantee or insurance of loans by the 
        Secretary of the Interior;
            (2) although the Secretary of the Interior has made loan 
        guarantees and insurance available, use of those guarantees and 
        that insurance by lenders to benefit Native American business 
        borrowers has been limited;
            (3) twenty-seven years after the date of enactment of the 
        Indian Financing Act of 1974 (25 U.S.C. 1451 et seq.), the 
        promotion and development of Native American-owned business 
        remains an essential foundation for growth of economic and 
        social stability of Native Americans;
            (4) use by commercial lenders of the available loan 
        insurance and guarantees may be limited by liquidity and other 
        capital market-driven concerns; and
            (5) it is in the best interest of the insured and guaranteed 
        loan program of the Department of the Interior--
                    (A) to encourage the orderly development and 
                expansion of a secondary market for loans guaranteed or 
                insured by the Secretary of the Interior; and

[[Page 116 STAT. 2836]]

                    (B) to expand the number of lenders originating 
                loans under the Indian Financing Act of 1974 (25 U.S.C. 
                1451 et seq.).

    (b) Purpose.--The purpose of this Act is to reform and clarify the 
Indian Financing Act of 1974 (25 U.S.C. 1451 et seq.) in order to--
            (1) stimulate the use by lenders of secondary market 
        investors for loans guaranteed or insured under a program 
        administered by the Secretary of the Interior;
            (2) preserve the authority of the Secretary to administer 
        the program and regulate lenders;
            (3) clarify that a good faith investor in loans insured or 
        guaranteed by the Secretary will receive appropriate payments;
            (4) provide for the appointment by the Secretary of a 
        qualified fiscal transfer agent to establish and administer a 
        system for the orderly transfer of those loans; and
            (5)(A) authorize the Secretary to promulgate regulations to 
        encourage and expand a secondary market program for loans 
        guaranteed or insured by the Secretary; and
            (B) allow the pooling of those loans as the secondary market 
        develops.

SEC. 103. AMENDMENTS TO INDIAN FINANCING ACT.

    (a) Limitation on Loan Amounts Without Prior Approval.--Section 204

COMPENSATION

SEC. 201. SHORT TITLE.

    This title may be cited as the ``Yankton Sioux Tribe and Santee 
Sioux Tribe Equitable Compensation Act''.

SEC. 202. FINDINGS.

    Congress finds that--
            (1) by enacting the Act of December 22, 1944, commonly known 
        as the ``Flood Control Act of 1944'' (58 Stat. 887, chapter 665; 
        33 U.S.C. 701-1 et seq.) Congress approved the Pick-Sloan 
        Missouri River Basin program (referred to in this section as the 
        ``Pick-Sloan program'')--
                    (A) to promote the general economic development of 
                the United States;
                    (B) to provide for irrigation above Sioux City, 
                Iowa;
                    (C) to protect urban and rural areas from 
                devastating floods of the Missouri River; and
                    (D) for other purposes;
            (2) the waters impounded for the Fort Randall and Gavins 
        Point projects of the Pick-Sloan program have inundated the 
        fertile, wooded bottom lands along the Missouri River that 
        constituted the most productive agricultural and pastoral lands 
        of, and the homeland of, the members of the Yankton Sioux Tribe 
        and the Santee Sioux Tribe;
            (3) the Fort Randall project (including the Fort Randall Dam 
        and Reservoir) overlies the western boundary of the Yankton 
        Sioux Tribe Indian Reservation;

[[Page 116 STAT. 2839]]

            (4) the Gavins Point project (including the Gavins Point Dam 
        and Reservoir) overlies the eastern boundary of the Santee Sioux 
        Tribe;
            (5) although the Fort Randall and Gavins Point projects are 
        major components of the Pick-Sloan program, and contribute to 
        the economy of the United States by generating a substantial 
        amount of hydropower and impounding a substantial quantity of 
        water, the reservations of the Yankton Sioux Tribe and the 
        Santee Sioux Tribe remain undeveloped;
            (6) the United States Army Corps of Engineers took the 
        Indian lands used for the Fort Randall and Gavins Point projects 
        by condemnation proceedings;
            (7) the Federal Government did not give the Yankton Sioux 
        Tribe and the Santee Sioux Tribe an opportunity to receive 
        compensation for direct damages from the Pick-Sloan program, 
        even though the Federal Government gave 5 Indian reservations 
        upstream from the reservations of those Indian tribes such an 
        opportunity;
            (8) the Yankton Sioux Tribe and the Santee Sioux Tribe did 
        not receive just compensation for the taking of productive 
        agricultural Indian lands through the condemnation referred to 
        in paragraph (6);
            (9) the settlement agreement that the United States entered 
        into with the Yankton Sioux Tribe and the Santee Sioux Tribe to 
        provide compensation for the taking by condemnation referred to 
        in paragraph (6) did not take into account the increase in 
        property values over the years between the date of taking and 
        the date of settlement; and
            (10) in addition to the financial compensation provided 
        under the settlement agreements referred to in paragraph (9)--
                    (A) the Yankton Sioux Tribe should receive an 
                aggregate amount equal to $23,023,743 for the loss value 
                of 2,851.40 acres of Indian land taken for the Fort 
                Randall Dam and Reservoir of the Pick-Sloan program; and
                    (B) the Santee Sioux Tribe should receive an 
                aggregate amount equal to $4,789,010 for the loss value 
                of 593.10 acres of Indian land located near the Santee 
                village.

     TITLE III--OKLAHOMA NATIVE AMERICAN CULTURAL CENTER AND MUSEUM

SEC. 301. OKLAHOMA NATIVE AMERICAN CULTURAL CENTER AND MUSEUM.

    (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) In order to promote better understanding between Indian 
        and non-Indian citizens of the United States, and in light of 
        the Federal Government's continuing trust responsibilities to 
        Indian tribes, it is appropriate, desirable, and a proper 
        function of the Federal Government to provide grants for the 
        development of a museum designated to display the heritage and 
        culture of Indian tribes.
            (2) In recognition of the unique status and history of 
        Indian tribes in the State of Oklahoma and the role of the 
        Federal Government in such history, it is appropriate and proper 
        for the museum referred to in paragraph (1) to be located in the 
        State of Oklahoma.

    (b) Grant.--
            (1) In general.--The Secretary shall offer to award 
        financial assistance equaling not more than $33,000,000 and 
        technical assistance to the Authority to be used for the 
        development and construction of a Native American Cultural 
        Center and Museum in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
            (2) Agreement.--To be eligible to receive a grant under 
        paragraph (1), the appropriate official of the Authority shall--
                    (A) enter into a grant agreement with the Secretary 
                which shall specify the duties of the Authority under 
                this section, including provisions for continual 
                maintenance of the Center by the Authority without the 
                use of Federal funds; and
                    (B) demonstrate, to the satisfaction of the 
                Secretary, that the Authority has raised, or has 
                commitments from private persons or State or local 
                government agencies for, an amount that is equal to not 
                less than 66 percent of the cost to the Authority of the 
                activities to be carried out under the grant.
            (3) Limitation.--The amount of any grant awarded under 
        paragraph (1) shall not exceed 33 percent of the cost of the 
        activities to be funded under the grant.
            (4) In-kind contribution.--When calculating the cost share 
        of the Authority under this title, the Secretary shall reduce 
        such cost share obligation by the fair market value of the 
        approximately 300 acres of land donated by Oklahoma City for the 
        Center, if such land is used for the Center.

  TITLE VI--CHEROKEE, <<NOTE: Cherokee, Choctaw, and Chickasaw Nations 
     Claims Settlement Act.>> CHOCTAW, AND CHICKASAW NATIONS CLAIMS 
SETTLEMENT ACT

SEC. 601. <<NOTE: 25 USC 1779 note.>> SHORT TITLE.

    This title may be cited as the ``Cherokee, Choctaw, and Chickasaw 
Nations Claims Settlement Act''.

SEC. 602. <<NOTE: 25 USC 1779.>> FINDINGS.

    The Congress finds the following:
            (1) It is the policy of the United States to promote tribal 
        self-determination and economic self-sufficiency and to 
        encourage the resolution of disputes over historical claims 
        through mutually agreed-to settlements between Indian Nations 
        and the United States.
            (2) There are pending before the United States Court of 
        Federal Claims certain lawsuits against the United States 
        brought by the Cherokee, Choctaw, and Chickasaw Nations seeking 
        monetary damages for the alleged use and mismanagement of tribal 
        resources along the Arkansas River in eastern Oklahoma.
            (3) The Cherokee Nation, a federally recognized Indian tribe 
        with its present tribal headquarters south of Tahlequah, 
        Oklahoma, having adopted its most recent constitution on June 
        26, 1976, and having entered into various treaties with the 
        United States, including but not limited to the Treaty at 
        Hopewell, executed on November 28, 1785 (7 Stat. 18), and the 
        Treaty at Washington, D.C., executed on July 19, 1866 (14 Stat. 
        799), has maintained a continuous government-to-government 
        relationship with the United States since the earliest years of 
        the Union.
            (4) The Choctaw Nation, a federally recognized Indian tribe 
        with its present tribal headquarters in Durant, Oklahoma, having 
        adopted its most recent constitution on July 9, 1983, and having 
        entered into various treaties with the United States of America, 
        including but not limited to the Treaty at Hopewell, executed on 
        January 3, 1786 (7 Stat. 21), and the Treaty at Washington, 
        D.C., executed on April 28, 1866 (7 Stat. 21), has maintained a 
        continuous government-to-government relationship with the United 
        States since the earliest years of the Union.
            (5) The Chickasaw Nation, a federally recognized Indian 
        tribe with its present tribal headquarters in Ada, Oklahoma, 
        having adopted its most recent constitution on August 27, 1983, 
        and having entered into various treaties with the United States 
        of America, including but not limited to the Treaty at Hopewell, 
        executed on January 10, 1786 (7 Stat. 24), and the Treaty at 
        Washington, D.C., executed on April 28, 1866 (7 Stat. 21),

[[Page 116 STAT. 2846]]

        has maintained a continuous government-to-government 
        relationship with the United States since the earliest years of 
        the Union.
            (6) In the first half of the 19th century, the Cherokee, 
        Choctaw, and Chickasaw Nations were forcibly removed from their 
        homelands in the southeastern United States to lands west of the 
        Mississippi in the Indian Territory that were ceded to them by 
        the United States. From the ``Three Forks'' area near present 
        day Muskogee, Oklahoma, downstream to the point of confluence 
        with the Canadian River, the Arkansas River flowed entirely 
        within the territory of the Cherokee Nation. From that point of 
        confluence downstream to the Arkansas territorial line, the 
        Arkansas River formed the boundary between the Cherokee Nation 
        on the left side of the thread of the river and the Choctaw and 
        Chickasaw Nations on the right.
            (7) Pursuant to the Act of April 30, 1906 (34 Stat. 137), 
        tribal property not allotted to individuals or otherwise 
        disposed of, including the bed and banks of the Arkansas River, 
        passed to the United States in trust for the use and benefit of 
        the respective Indian Nations in accordance with their 
        respective interests therein.
            (8) For more than 60 years after Oklahoma statehood, the 
        Bureau of Indian Affairs believed that Oklahoma owned the 
        Riverbed from the Arkansas State line to Three Forks, and 
        therefore took no action to protect the Indian Nations' Riverbed 
        resources such as oil, gas, and Drybed Lands suitable for 
        grazing and agriculture.
            (9) Third parties with property near the Arkansas River 
        began to occupy the Indian Nations' Drybed Lands--lands that 
        were under water at the time of statehood but that are now dry 
        due to changes in the course of the river.
            (10) In 1966, the Indian Nations sued the State of Oklahoma 
        to recover their lands. In 1970, the Supreme Court of the United 
        States decided in the case of Choctaw Nation vs. Oklahoma (396 
        U.S. 620), that the Indian Nations retained title to their 
        respective portions of the Riverbed along the navigable reach of 
        the river.
            (11) In 1987, the Supreme Court of the United States in the 
        case of United States vs. Cherokee Nation (480 U.S. 700) decided 
        that the riverbed lands did not gain an exemption from the 
        Federal Government's navigational servitude and that the 
        Cherokee Nation had no right to compensation for damage to its 
        interest by exercise of the Government's servitude.
            (12) In 1989, the Indian Nations filed lawsuits against the 
        United States in the United States Court of Federal Claims (Case 
        Nos. 218-89L and 630-89L), seeking damages for the United 
        States' use and mismanagement of tribal trust resources along 
        the Arkansas River. Those actions are still pending.
            (13) In 1997, the United States filed quiet title litigation 
        against individuals occupying some of the Indian Nations' Drybed 
        Lands. That action, filed in the United States District Court 
        for the Eastern District of Oklahoma, was dismissed without 
        prejudice on technical grounds.
            (14) Much of the Indian Nations' Drybed Lands have been 
        occupied by a large number of adjacent landowners in Oklahoma. 
        Without Federal legislation, further litigation against

[[Page 116 STAT. 2847]]

        thousands of such landowners would be likely and any final 
        resolution of disputes would take many years and entail great 
        expense to the United States, the Indian Nations, and the 
        individuals and entities occupying the Drybed Lands and would 
        seriously impair long-term economic planning and development for 
        all parties.
            (15) The Councils of the Cherokee and Choctaw Nations and 
        the Legislature of the Chickasaw Nation have each enacted tribal 
        resolutions which would, contingent upon the passage of this 
        title and the satisfaction of its terms and in exchange for the 
        moneys appropriated hereunder--
                    (A) settle and forever release their respective 
                claims against the United States asserted by them in 
                United States Court of Federal Claims Case Nos. 218-89L 
                and 630-89L; and
                    (B) forever disclaim any and all right, title, and 
                interest in and to the Disclaimed Drybed Lands, as set 
                forth in those enactments of the respective councils of 
                the Indian Nations.
            (16) The resolutions adopted by the respective Councils of 
        the Cherokee, Choctaw, and Chickasaw Nations each provide that, 
        contingent upon the passage of the settlement legislation and 
        satisfaction of its terms, each Indian Nation agrees to dismiss, 
        release, and forever discharge its claims asserted against the 
        United States in the United States Court of Federal Claims, Case 
        Nos. 218-89L and 630-89L, and to forever disclaim any right, 
        title, or interest of the Indian Nation in the Disclaimed Drybed 
        Lands, in exchange for the funds appropriated and allocated to 
        the Indian Nation under the provisions of the settlement 
        legislation, which funds the Indian Nation agrees to accept in 
        full satisfaction and settlement of all claims against the 
        United States for the damages sought in the aforementioned 
        claims asserted in the United States Court of Federal Claims, 
        and as full and fair compensation for disclaiming its right, 
        title, and interest in the Disclaimed Drybed Lands.
            (17) In those resolutions, each Indian Nation expressly 
        reserved all of its beneficial interest and title to all other 
        Riverbed lands, including minerals, as determined by the Supreme 
        Court in Choctaw Nation v. Oklahoma, 397 U.S. 620 (1970), and 
        further reserved any and all right, title, or interest that each 
        Nation may have in and to the water flowing in the Arkansas 
        River and its tributaries.

SEC. 603. <<NOTE: 25 USC 1779a.>> PURPOSES.

    The purposes of this title are to resolve all claims that have been 
or could have been brought by the Cherokee, Choctaw, and Chickasaw 
Nations against the United States, and to confirm that the Indian

Disclaimed Drybed Lands, which are contiguous to the channel of the 
Arkansas River as of the date of the enactment of this title in certain 
townships in eastern Oklahoma.

        lands which, on the date of enactment of this title, lie above 
        and contiguous to the mean high water mark of the Arkansas River

        to have the same meaning as the term ``Upland Claim Area'' as 
        used by the Bureau of Land Management Cadastral Survey 
        Geographic Team in its preliminary survey of the Arkansas River.

releases, and dismisses all the claims they have asserted or could have 
asserted in their cases numbered 218-89L and 630-89L pending in the

[[Page 116 STAT. 2849]]

    (b) Release of Tribal Claims to Certain Drybed Lands.--
            (1) In general.--Upon the deposit of all funds authorized 
        for appropriation under subsection (c) for an Indian Nation into 
        the appropriate trust fund account described in section 606--
                    (A) all claims now existing or which may arise in 
                the future with respect to the Disclaimed Drybed Lands 
                and all right, title, and interest that the Indian 
                Nations and the United States as trustee on behalf of 
                the Indian Nation may have to the Disclaimed Drybed 
                Lands, shall be deemed extinguished;
                    (B) any interest of the Indian Nations or the United 
                States as trustee on their behalf in the Disclaimed 
                Drybed Lands shall further be extinguished pursuant to 
                the Trade and Intercourse Act of 1790, Act of July 22, 
                1790 (ch. 33, 1 Stat. 137), and all subsequent 
                amendments thereto (as codified at 25 U.S.C. 177);
                    (C) to the extent parties other than the Indian 
                Nations have transferred interests in the Disclaimed 
                Drybed Lands in violation of the Trade and Intercourse 
                Act, Congress does hereby approve and ratify such 
                transfers of interests in the Disclaimed Drybed Lands to 
                the extent that such transfers otherwise are valid under 
                law; and
                    (D) the Secretary is authorized to execute an 
                appropriate document citing this title, suitable for 
                filing with the county clerks, or such other county 
                official as appropriate, of those counties wherein the 
                foregoing described lands are located, disclaiming any 
                tribal or Federal interest on behalf of the Indian 
                Nations in such Disclaimed Drybed Lands. The Secretary 
                is authorized to file with the counties a plat or map of 
                the disclaimed lands should the Secretary determine that 
                such filing will clarify the extent of lands disclaimed. 
                Such a plat or map may be filed regardless of whether 
                the map or plat has been previously approved for filing, 
                whether or not the map or plat has been filed, and 
                regardless of whether the map or plat constitutes a 
                final determination by the Secretary of the extent of 
                the Indian Nations' original claim to the Disclaimed 
                Drybed Lands. The disclaimer filed by the United States 
                shall constitute a disclaimer of the Disclaimed Drybed 
                Lands for purposes of the Trade and Intercourse Act (25 
                U.S.C. 177).
            (2) Special provisions.--Notwithstanding any provision of 
        this title--
                    (A) the Indian Nations do not relinquish any right, 
                title, or interest in any lands which constitute the 
                Wetbed Lands subject to the navigational servitude 
                exercised by the United States on the Wetbed Lands. By 
                virtue of the exercise of the navigational servitude, 
                the United States shall not be liable to the Indian 
                Nations for any loss they may have related to the 
                minerals in the Wetbed Lands;
                    (B) no provision of this title shall be construed to 
                extinguish or convey any water rights of the Indian 
                Nations in the Arkansas River or any other stream or the 
                beneficial interests or title of any of the Indian 
                Nations in and to lands held in trust by the United 
                States on the date of

                mean high water mark of the Arkansas River, except for 
                the Disclaimed Drybed Lands; and
                    (C) the Indian Nations do not relinquish any right, 
                title, or interest in any lands or minerals of certain 
                unallotted tracts which are identified in the official 
                records of the Eastern Oklahoma Regional Office, Bureau 
                of Indian Affairs. The disclaimer to be filed by the 
                Secretary of the Interior under section 605(b)(1) of 
                this title shall reflect the legal description of the 
                unallotted tracts retained by the Nations.
            (3) Setoff.--In the event the Court of Federal Claims does 
        not enter the consent decree as set forth in subsection (a), the 
        United States shall be entitled to setoff against any claims of 
        the Indian Nations as set forth in subsection (a), any funds 
        transferred to the Indian Nations pursuant to section 606, and 
        any interest accrued thereon up to the date of setoff.
            (4) Quiet title actions.--Notwithstanding any other 
        provision of law, neither the United States nor any department 
        of the United States nor the Indian Nations shall be made 
        parties to any quiet title lawsuit or other lawsuit to determine 
        ownership of or an interest in the Disclaimed Drybed Lands 
        initiated by any private person or private entity after 
        execution of the disclaimer set out in section 605(b)(1). The 
        United States will have no obligation to undertake any future 
        quiet title actions or actions for the recovery of lands or 
        funds relating to any Drybed Lands retained by the Indian Nation 
        or Indian Nations under this title, including any lands which 
        are Wetbed Lands on the date of enactment of this title, but 
        which subsequently lie above the mean high water mark of the 
        Arkansas River and the failure or declination to initiate any 
        quiet title action or to manage any such Drybed Lands shall not 
        constitute a breach of trust by the United States or be 
        compensable to the Indian Nation or Indian Nations in any 
        manner.
            (5) Land to be conveyed in fee.--To the extent that the 
        United States determines that it is able to effectively maintain 
        the McClellan-Kerr Navigation Way without retaining title to 
        lands above the high water mark of the Arkansas River as of the 
        date of enactment of this title, said lands, after being 
        declared surplus, shall be conveyed in fee to the Indian Nation 
        within whose boundary the land is located. The United States 
        shall not be obligated to accept such property in trust.

    (c) Authorization for Settlement Appropriations.--There is

SEC. 809. WATER RIGHTS.

    The water rights of the Tribe are part of and included in the 
Jicarilla Apache Tribe Water Rights Settlement Act (Public Law 102-441). 
These rights are adjudicated under New Mexico State law as a partial 
final judgment and decree entered in the Eleventh Judicial District 
Court of New Mexico. That Act and decree provide for sufficient water 
rights under ``historic and existing uses'' to supply water for the 
municipal water system. These water rights are recognized depletions 
within the San Juan River basin and no new depletions are associated 
with the Rural Water Supply Project. In consultation with the United 
States Fish and Wildlife Service, Reclamation has determined that there 
shall be no significant impact to endangered species as a result of 
water depletions associated with this project. No other water rights of 
the Tribe shall be impacted by the Rural Water Supply Project.
