Dear Mr. Arobba:

We have been informed that a draft version of the Oglala Sioux Tribe’s 1999 Indirect Cost Fund audit has been completed and was forwarded to Cora Jones at the BIA regional offices in Aberdeen nearly two weeks ago.

Although the BIA is viewed as the "client" in this situation, this audit process would not have occurred if it weren’t for the courageous efforts of the Grass Roots Oyate. As members of the Oglala Sioux Tribe, it is our right to review any and all financial reports that involve tribal funds. Therefore, we respectfully request that you forward a copy of this audit report to us at the address listed above.

Thank you for prompt attention to this matter.


Floyd L. Hand, Jr.
