Blackfeet Nation to join tribal bison hunt just outside Yellowstone NP

Members of the Blackfeet Nation will begin hunting bison outside of Yellowstone National Park next week, joining five other Native American tribes in exercising tribal hunting rights there.

The state of Montana wrote a letter late last week recognizing the Blackfeet Nation’s tribal treaty rights to hunt bison that migrate out of the park based on historic record of Blackfeet hunters using the area and treaty language that reserved the tribe’s rights. The recognition came nearly two years after the Blackfeet first asked for it.
