(**IMPORTANT NOTE** This petition is for NON-Blackfeet people who wish to support tribal members opposed to fracking within the Blackfeet Nation. IF YOU ARE A MEMBER OF THE BLACKFEET TRIBE, GO HERE.)
We, the undersigned, stand in solidarity with members of Blackfeet Nation who are opposed to hydro-fracturing on the Blackfeet Reservation until a referendum is held. We are testifying that we hold in common the following two positions:
1) We object to agreements established in 2006 between Blackfeet Nation and Anschutz Investment Inc, Rosetta Resources Inc, and Newfield Exploration Inc. that would allow any of the aforementioned corporations and/or future sub-lessees to conduct hydro-fracturing for subsurface resources on the Blackfeet Nation. These agreements were arranged without the consent of the majority of Blackfeet Tribal membership, and without community consultation with potentially affected parties both on- and off-reservation.
2) We support a moratorium on any planned hydrofracturing until a referendum as taken place on the Blackfeet Nation.
