Revoking Executive Order of December 16, 1882,  Which Reserved Lands for Moqui (or Hopi) Reservation

By virtue of the authoriy vested in the President and pursuant to Executive Order No. 10355 of May 26, 1952 it is order as follows:

The Executive Order of December 16, 1882 withdrawing from settlement or described tract of country in Arizona for the use and occupancy of the Moqui and such other Indians as the Secretary of the Interior might see fit to settle there-in is hereby revoked:

Beginning onthe one hundred and tenth degree of longitude west of Greenwich, at a point 36
degree 30'north; thence due west to the one hundred and eleventh degree of longitude 35 degree 30' north; thence due east to the one hundred and tenth degree of longitude west; thence due north to place of beginning.

The lands were declared by the act of July 22, 1958 (72 Stat. 402), to be held by the United States in trust for the Hopi indians and such other Indians, if any, as theretofore had been settled thereon by the Secretary of the Interior pursuant to the Executive Order of December 16, 1882.

This order, therefore, has no effect upon the lands involved in the withdrawal of December 16, 1882, other than as an administrative measure to clear the records of such withdrawal.
