Group forms to battle corruption on reservations in Montana
Posted: Friday, October 4, 2013
Members of nearly every Montana tribe met on Wednesday to form a group aimed at batting corruption on their reservations.
Ken Blatt St. Marks, the chairman of the Chippewa Cree Tribe
, hosted the meeting. He was targeted for removal because he helped federal authorities with investigations that have resulted in multiple indictments.
“When I was elected, I knew there was a little corruption that needs to be cleaned up,” St. Marks at the meeting, The Havre Daily News reported. “I had no idea how much.”
Cedric Black Eagle, a former chairman of the Crow Tribe, spoke via telephone, the paper said. He said people on reservations are tired of dealing with corruption.
