Political Unrest Leads Blackfeet Protesters to Charges in Tribal Court

 

On September 6, six Blackfeet tribal members who are part of a group calling itself the Blackfeet Against Corruption, pleaded not guilty in tribal court to charges of assault and other disorderly conduct according to the Associated Press.

The charges stem from an arrest on September 3 during a protest against the Blackfeet tribal government, following a year of political unrest on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation.

The group protested outside tribal headquarters in Browning, Montana demanding “that Chairman Willie Sharp Jr. obey an August 25 ruling by a traditional customs court that said an interim tribal council should be named until a new election could be held.”
