The Seldovia Village Tribe and Seldovia Native Association did not misuse federal funds and kept the Bureau of Indian Affairs informed about changes in the Seldovia Bay Ferry, the Acting Inspector General said in a letter to U.S. Sen. Mark Begich, D-Alaska. "We found that the tribe notified BIA before implementing any changes to the type, use and purpose of the ferry," said Mary Kendall, Acting Inspector General for the U.S. Department of Interior in a letter sent to Begich late last month.
