Texas oilman sues for access to Blackfeet sacred land


April 18, 2017

One of three remaining energy development leaseholders in the Badger-Two Medicine area south of the Blackfeet Indian Reservation has sued the federal government for access to the land, despite the Department of Interior’s cancellation of the leases in January.

W.A. Moncrief of Fort Worth, Texas, filed his case on April 3, claiming “sudden cancellation of a federal oil and gas lease more than 35 years after its issuance.” Moncrief’s case goes before the same federal judge in Washington, D.C., who is hearing the case of Solenex LLC.
