Montana tribes take part in Lewis & Clark event

Leaders of the Crow Tribe and the Northern Cheyenne Tribe took part in a Lewis and Clark event at Pompeys Pillar National Monument in Montana.

Crow Chairman Carl Venne said the expedition "began the end of a way of life for our people," The Billings Gazette reported. Northern Cheyenne President Eugene Little Coyote said the tribe is seeking economic independence 200 years after the journey.

Pompeys Pillar is a sacred place in Crow territory. It is referred to as the mountain lion's den.
