The Blackfeet Nation of Montana will recognize Sen. Jon Tester (D-Montana) and Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament for supporting sacred sites.

Tester and Arment back the tribe's efforts to prevent energy development in the Badger-Two Medicine Area near the reservation. They will be honored by Chairman Harry Barnes and council member Tyson Running Wolf at a ceremony in Browning tomorrow afternoon.

Tester, the vice chairman of the Senate Indian Affairs Committee, has called for the cancellation of 18 oil and gas leases in the area. He will appear along with Arment, who hails from Montana, at the dedication of the Thunder Park skate park in Browning. Arment helped fund the project.

The tribe will continue to focus on sacred site issues during Badger-Two Medicine Day on Saturday. Events will be held at Mittens Lake on the reservation.
