  • Lawyer criticizes appeals court decision in eagle case

    By Ben Neary

    A specialist in American Indian law says a federal court ruling in the case of a Wyoming man who shot a bald eagle for use in his tribe’s Sun Dance follows a pattern of decisions that profess respect for American Indian religion while punishing individual tribal members.

    The United States Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit during May reinstated a misdemeanor criminal charge against Winslow Friday, 23, a Northern Arapaho. Friday shot a bald eagle on the Wind River Reservation in Central Wyoming for use in his tribe’s 2005 Sun Dance.
