Executive Order 1476—Restoring Lands to Jicarilla Apache Indian Reservation
Under authority of the act of Congress of June 4, 1897 (30 Stat., 11 at 34 and 36), and upon recommendation of the Secretary of Agriculture, it is hereby ordered that on and after March 1, 1912, the boundaries of the Carson National Forest, N. Mex., as proclaimed March 2, 1909, and modified by subsequent proclamation of August 24, 1910, be further modified by excluding therefrom all that part of the Jicarilla Apache Indian Reservation included in the said Carson National Forest by the said proclamation of March 2, 1909.
The purpose of this exclusion is to restore the Jicarilla Apache Indian Reservation in all respects to the status existing prior to the said proclamation of March 2, 1909, as though the inclusion of the lands within the Carson National Forest had not been ordered, and said Indian reservation is hereby fully recreated and restored to that status.
