WE VOTED, AND THE WATERS OF THE BLACKFEET WERE SECURED
After decades of negotiation, we secured the rights to our water. In a historic vote on April 20, 2017, Blackfeet Tribal Members voted in favor of the Blackfeet Water Compact and Settlement Act – ending our decades-long fight for our water rights. The compact confirmed and quantified our water rights, and established the Tribe’s jurisdiction over our water.
Most importantly, you, the Blackfeet people, spoke clearly, and because of your voice, our waters were secured.
