Montana seeks $146K repayment from Chippewa Cree, claims tribe overbilled

BILLINGS -- The Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation is seeking repayment of $146,000 it says it was overbilled for transporting pipe for use in a regional water project whose funding has been a target of fraud and questionable spending.

The Rocky Boy’s Reservation’s Chippewa Cree Construction Corp. has been asked to refund the amount.

The project, the Rocky Boy’s/North Central Montana Regional Water System, is to bring safe drinking water to the Rocky Boy’s Reservation and to 21 surrounding towns and rural water districts in seven north-central counties.

The DNRC provides state funding to the North Central Montana Regional Water Authority, which contracts with the CCCC for work on the project.

American Indians who share reservation face off in lawsuit

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A long-running political dispute between two American Indian tribes forced more than a century ago to live together on a Wyoming reservation has spilled into the courtroom, with one accusing the other of violating its sovereignty.

More than 10,000 Northern Arapaho and 4,000 Eastern Shoshone live on the Wind River Reservation, in a rural basin ringed by mountains. The two tribes — historic adversaries made to live side-by-side in the 1860s — for decades maintained separate governments, but have met regularly through a joint council.

Now, after the Arapaho attempted to dissolve the council two years ago, the tribe is suing two Shoshone leaders in federal court in Montana. The suit filed Monday claims Eastern Shoshone leaders unilaterally revived the joint council and approved mineral leases and made hiring decisions without consulting the Northern Arapaho.

The Arapaho also allege officials from the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs encouraged the Shoshone to take independent action affecting both tribes, despite the Arapaho's objections.
