Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the interests of any Indian minor in any lands of the Yakima Indian Reservation, State of Washington, whether by direct allotment or by inheritance, may be sold on such terms and conditions and under such rules and regulations as the Secretary of the Interior may prescribe; but such sale shall be only on approved petition of the natural guardian of such minor, if living, or if such natural guardian be dead, on the petition of a person designated by the Secretary of the Interior. All sales hereunder shall be subject to the approval of the Secretary of the Interior, and when so approved he shall cause patent to issue to the purchaser, passing unconditional fee by the United States as trustee for such minor to the interest of such minor in such lands, and such patent shall be considered, to the extent of the interest so conveyed, as a cancellation of any previous trust patent or patent containing restrictions on alienation issued to such minor or to any Indian allottee of whom such minor is an heir. Proceeds from sales hereunder shall be cared for under the direction of the Commissioner of Indian Affairs, and he may, in his discretion, cause shares of minors to be deposited in the Treasury of the United States to the individual credit of the said minors, to be withdrawn on the authority of the Secretary of the Interior.
That all laws and parts of laws in conflict with this act are hereby repealed.
Approved, March 27, 1908.
