Blackfeet vote for change

Blackfeet tribal members voted Tuesday to overhaul their tribal government and oust their longtime tribal chairman.

Tribal members voted to change their 73-year-old constitution to include a separation of powers, dividing their government into three branches – legislative, judicial and executive. They also elected Henry Butterfly tribal chairman. Butterfly received 1,860 votes to Chairman Earl Old Person’s 999. Read more about it here.
