LIVE: Police Enter Blackfeet Tribal Headquarters

By Beacon Staff

Police have once again entered Blackfeet tribal headquarters in an attempt to remove three councilors at the middle of political gridlock that has crippled the government east of the divide. Last week, federal officers, including those with the Department of Homeland Security, tried to remove Bill Old Chief, Paul McEvers and Cheryl Little Dog, councilors who were suspended in 2012 and recently reappointed by Chairman Willie Sharp.

Flathead Beacon reporter Justin Franz is in contact with people on the ground and is recording it on Twitter.
