Blackfeet plaintiffs sue over resources


Five members of the Blackfeet Tribe filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court recently, seeking compensation for what they allege is the federal government’s illegal use of tribally owned natural resources.

In the complaint, the plaintiffs state they are also seeking affirmation of the tribe’s legal ownership of all natural resources, all water delivery infrastructure and all waterways originating on or passing through the reservation. It names the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Department of the Interior among the defendants in the case.
