Shutdown Affects Montana Tribes

Posted: Updated:

Tribes in the Montana area are also feeling the effects of the Government shut down. The Bureau of Indian Affairs says they will be continuing essential activities like law enforcement, schools and firefighting, but some cuts to the Native American community have been made. These include financial assistance for the needy, payments for foster care, and oversight of environmental and cultural programs.

The long term effects this shutdown will have on the future of all Native American tribes is still very uncertain. On Montana'S Fort Belknap Reservation, President Tracy King says two of their tribes will pay for affected programs themselves until federal payments resumes.
