  1. Tom Hahn says:

    Right away appraisals should be done by person’s that have no conflicts of interests. BIA employee’s should not be allowed to make appraisal’s. It is done by independent appraisers.

  2. Katherine Ware-Perosi says:

    All Indian Trust land appraisals, ROW’s state, city, local and federal projects should be appraised by a competitive independent appraisal contractor for the benefit of Tribes & landowners. DOI/OST appraisers are cheating the Native Americans of the value of their lands. Land is land it does not change. All lands are equal in the United States. The Native Americans are being cheated & disrespected of the value of their lands. Katherine Ware-Perosi, Kiowa Indian Landowner, Semi-Retired DOI BIA/ROW Specialist
