Ament Honored by Blackfoot Tribe

According to the Missoulian, the Blackfoot Tribe invited Jeff Ament and John Tester to their reservation to present them with honors for their work to protect the people and culture of the Blackfeet, specifically for opposing drilling for oil and gas by the Solenex corporation and for a $250,000 skate park funded in part by Pearl Jam's Vitalogy Foundation.   Both were presented with flags of the Blackfeet Nation and Ament also found himself with an honorary Blackfoot name of "Holds Water."
