“Heartbreak, anger, and confusion spread through the Blackfeet Reservation after vandals destroyed multiple headstones.
Family members and loved ones arrived at the Willow Creek Cemetery Thursday morning to find that headstones had been pushed over and most of the photos in the stone were broken.
“This senseless act of vandalism borders on terrorism, creating trauma, heartbreak, and psychological harm to the affected families and all good people of the Blackfeet Nation,” Chairman Tim Davis of the Blackfeet Tribal Business Council said. “The council will work with all law enforcement agencies to ensure the vandals are caught and brought to justice.”
Glacier County, the Blackfeet Tribal Business Council, and Willow Creek Cemetery are working to help families repair the damage, but police are having a hard time finding the responsible parties.”
