Subject to valid existing rights and the provisions of existing withdrawals, tracts of public land in Alaska customarily used by Indians, Eskimos, or Aleuts as burial places for their dead, are hereby withdrawn from all forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining but not the mineral leasing laws, and reserved under jurisdiction of the Secretary of the Interior as cemeteries for use in connection with the administration of the affairs of the Natives of Alaska.
The withdrawal made by this order shall include a strip of land 330 feet in width surrounding the perimeter of each cemetery, for the proper care, upkeep, and administration thereof.
This order shall be effective immediately with respect to those native cemeteries in Alaska which are delineated as such upon the approved and accepted plats of survey, and with respect to other native cemeteries in Alaska, upon the filing in the Land Office having jurisdiction of the area, of an accepted plat of survey designating an area as a cemetery, and the notation thereon of the character of such cemetery as a native cemetery.
