Tribes must abide by Wy G & F regs
SHERIDAN — Native American tribal members must abide by Wyoming Game and Fish Department regulations when hunting off an established reservation, according to an order handed down by Sheridan County Circuit Court Judge Shelley Cundiff June 11.
The article covers the on going legal maneuverings. Herrera has 30 days from the date of the order to appeal the case per state statute. There is no limit on the number of times he can appeal the case.
So for now the tribal /clan segregationist must abide by same rules and regulation of Wyoming as all other US citizens
Excellent, excellent, excellent!!!
I’ve been wondering how this was going to play out. Thanks for updating.
Good ruling by the judge! Thanks for the update!
Finally a judge with common sense.
Or they could make them use only the technology that was available when the treaties we’re signed. Horses for transportation and really crappy bows and arrows. No synthetic nets for fishing etc.
Not so sure about “really crappy” bows and arrows... but would be OK with that for any tribal hunting rights.
No use of pickup trucks allowed from their house to the hunting area and back, either...
That's been my opinion for years. Their arguments for more liberal hunting rights all revolve around maintaining their heritage, etc. That being the case, they should have to abide by all the old ways, especially in their equipment usage. And they don't get to use horses! The hated Europeans brought those over to them. They shouldn't get to pick and choose which new world stuff they keep and which they ignore. Their great horse culture that they are so proud of was a gift from the white man!
That's awesome, but their ability to appeal unlimited times is ridiculous.
What a tremendous opportunity to keep their history and traditions alive!
Bows made in the traditional way - trees cut with flint axes and shaped using flint and sandstone. Or get really serious and make a horn bow...
Arrows made from river cane.
Points and knives hand knapped.
Clothes and accessories made from brain-tanned hides.
Dog travois for packing.
Bow drill for fire (remember, they didn’t have steel!)
24-7-365 hunting season...
Afraid not too many (if any) would take up that challenge. Probably a lot more white guys with more of those primitive skills these days than Indians.
