Tribal Nations Land Buy Back Program

The Land Buy-Back Program for Tribal Nations will soon be offering fair market value to landowners of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians.  If you voluntarily choose to sell your ownership interest, the interest will be transferred to the Tribe, which helps reduce fractionation and keep Indian lands in trust.

The Bureau of Trust Funds Administration (BFTA) is looking for the following Whereabouts Unknown (WAU) individuals. BFTA maintains an Individual Indian Monies (IIM) account for these individuals that has either cash, land or both in the account.

If you know the whereabouts of anyone on the list, we would like to speak with you.  You can call the Trust Beneficiary Call Center at 1-888-678-6836 to update your information or call our local BFTA office at (701) 477-3828.  Very important or you won’t receive an offer if your address is not updated.
