Default Wyoming Native American tribe gets rare permit to kill bald eagles

Wyoming Native American Tribe Gets Rare Permit To Kill Bald Eagles | Fox News
March 14, 2012
Quote:
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has taken the unusual step of issuing a permit allowing an American Indian tribe in Wyoming to kill two bald eagles for religious purposes.

The agency's decision comes after the Northern Arapaho Tribe filed a federal lawsuit last year contending the refusal to issue such permits violates tribal members' religious freedom. Although thousands of American Indians apply for eagle feathers and carcasses from a federal repository, permits allowing the killing of bald eagles are exceedingly rare, according to both tribal and legal experts on the matter.
One of the conditions for statehood for Alaska, I'm told, wads that Alaska had to stop offering a bounty on Bald Eagles, which were considered fish eating pests in the territorial days.

Oh, but we are!

On the other hand, if it were part of, say a Catholic ritual, well then "no eagle soup for you!"

We are all equal of course, but as Orwell readers will recall, some of us are just more equal than others.

Perhaps I need to reread my Native American lore books, but I thought they normally revered the animals and their sprirts, not killed them for their plumage......

I live a stone's throw from Cherokee NC, and preservation and respect of the animals is quite high on their list. But that's just one tribe.

What tribes don't?

I think we're beginning with a false assumption (or several). The assumption that those who allow culling one or two bald eagles amounts to a lack of preservation and respect is a bit much.

I know that eagle feathers are important in many Pueblo Tribes as well as the Navajo...
