How the Oregon militia standoff became a battle with a Native American tribe

 


The press conferences were spaced two hours apart on Wednesday – one by armed militia leader Ammon Bundy, the other by a local Paiute Indian tribal leader. They expressed competing visions for the future of a swath of federally managed land in rural south-eastern Oregon.
