Northern Cheyenne Tribe rallies against meth


LAME DEER, Mont. –– Though the spring temperatures were chilly and the wind had a bite, on Monday, March 28, hundreds of people, including tribal leaders, tribal employees, community members and many students turned out promptly at 3 p.m. to walk in Lame Deer as a means of protesting problems involving “drugs and alcohol, especially meth,” on the Northern Cheyenne reservation.

The event underscored the “state of emergency” currently in effect as the tribal government, local law enforcement, local church leaders and community members join forces in the struggle to address and eliminate Reservation crime, including drug trafficking. The several hours long walk was closely supervised by members of the BIA law and order force who provided a police escort as the group marched down major reservation routes.
