DOJ mediator to present race relations report

A Department of Justice mediator is scheduled to present a report about Indian and non-Indian race relations in Havre, Montana.

Havre is a mostly non-Indian town located between the Rocky Boy's Reservation and the Fort Belknap Reservation. As a frequent destination for reservation residents, it has drawn a reputation of being hostile to Indians.

A University of Montana journalism project reinforced that view. A story entitled "Bordering on Racism" discussed negative views that non-Indians hold against Indians [Link].

The story prompted three visits from Grace Sage, the DOJ mediator. She will discuss her results at a meeting with tribal and local leaders today.
