Tribal Leaders Call For Bison Protection

St. Gooddard

The Montana-Wyoming Tribal Leaders Council passed a resolution late last month, which became available to the public over this past weekend. The resolution urges protection of the wild, migratory buffalo in and around Yellowstone National Park and Montana. The resolution urges the Governor of Montana, the Montana Legislature, U.S. Department of the Interior, Yellowstone National Park, U.S. Department of Agriculture, and U.S. Forest Service, to recognize and honor their trust responsibilities and treaty obligations to American Indian Nations with cultural, religious, and treaty rights and affiliations with buffalo. Spiritual Leader of the Blackfeet Confederacy Jimmy St. Goddard commented that the Interagency Bison Management Plan needs to be brought back to the table because it is hurting the buffalo instead of helping them.  St. Goddard says, “the [tribe] elders what it stopped, but nobody’s listening – the majority of Montana want it stopped, the majority of America want it stopped.”  The resolution urges the agencies to provide for viable populations of wild migratory bison in the wildlife species’ native habitat.

    Instead of fishing the same old places this spring, do something different. Find a new honey hole. You don’t have to go to the same place every time you go fishing. When you find a good spot to fish, it’s nice to know you can go back there and catch fish. But if your honey […]
