Dear Nicholas Estes:

The Bureau of Indian Affairs, Rocky Mountain Region FOIA office received your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, on April 26, 2021, and assigned it control number DOI-BIA-2021-003760. Please cite this number in any future communications with our office regarding your request.

In your request you seek:

"All documents and files, including letters, memos, emails and all communications pertaining to Native American rights activist Henry "Hank" Lyle Adams, an obituary of whom was published in Indian Country Today on December 31, 2020 with the title "Obituary: Henry 'Hank' Lyle Adams."

I would also like to request a search of all available cross-index files for mentions of Henry "Hank" Lyle Adams in other documents, to be included with this request."

We have classified you as an “other-use” requester. As such, we may charge you for some of our search and duplication costs, but we will not charge you for our review costs; you are also entitled to up to 2 hours of search time and 100 pages of photocopies (or an equivalent volume) for free. See 43 C.F.R. § 2.39. If, after taking into consideration your fee category entitlements, our processing costs are less than $50.00, we will not bill you because the cost of collection would be greater than the fee collected. See 43 C.F.R. § 2.37(g).

We use Multitrack Processing to process FOIA requests. The Simple track is for requests that would generally take one to five workdays to process. The Normal track is for requests that would generally take six to twenty workdays to process. The Complex track is for requests that would generally take twenty-one to sixty workdays to process. The Extraordinary track is for requests that would generally take more than sixty workdays to process. The Expedited track is for requests that have been granted expedited processing, which are processed as soon as practicable. Within each track, requests are usually processed on a first-in, first-out basis.
Your request falls into the Normal, processing tracks. There are two requests pending ahead of yours in this processing track.

On April 26, 2021, we also received an identical request which was assigned control number DOI-BIA-2120-003759, this one will be closed out as a duplicate.
