An article in the June 2 Gazette made known that Indian Health Service patients are forced to suffer a critical lack of direct care. The conditions they have endured are beyond poor health care — some patients have even died.

Crow Tribal Chairman Darrin Old Coyote revealed that most of the federal money now given to the IHS has been eaten up by the administration.

I want to know the name of all administrators in the Crow Tribe in the IHS, plus the job title of each.

I want to know the total amount of payment each administrator got in 2013, including paycheck, benefits and vacation pay of each. I also want to know the number of hours every one of them actually worked in 2013.

I want these questions answered by Labor Day, 2014.

Because of the IHS administration's misuse of my tax money, sick people are suffering and dying.
