Northern Cheyenne request Congressional investigation into BIA law enforcement
August 18, 2020
LAME DEER, Montana - Last month, Native Sun News Today printed a story “Lawlessness and Violence at Northern Cheyenne Blamed on Inadequate B.I.A. Law Enforcement” which quickly made its way through cyberspace.
Just one day later, the Northern Cheyenne Tribe formally, by letter, contacted members of the Montana Congressional delegation, requesting a Congressional investigation into the “crises in B.I.A. Law Enforcement at Northern Cheyenne and throughout Indian Country.”
The letter has also been posted on the Tribal website and forwarded by email to many tribal members, this reporter included. Based on email comments, many tribal and community members are favorable about the Tribe’s action.
