3 Fort Belknap tribal members found guilty of hunting violations


Three Fort Belknap Indian Community members, one of them a tribal council member, have been found guilty of violating state hunting laws.

The cases highlight what’s been a long-brewing dispute between members of the northeastern Montana Assiniboine and Gros Ventre tribes and Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks over off-reservation hunting. In 2014 that disagreement escalated when tribal game officials detained an FWP warden for more than five hours and threatened to tow his state vehicle. The standoff ended with a citation issued to the warden for violating a tribal resolution that barred nontribal members access to Indian-owned lands without permission.
