A recent ruling by the federal government*has granted a Wyoming tribe the right to kill two bald eagles for a religious ceremony. Native Americans are calling this a victory for American Indian sovereignty.

On March 9 the Northern Arapaho Tribe*was granted a permit allowing to either kill or capture and release two bald eagles this year.

Conversations*groups have questioned why the Arapaho tribal*members*can’t meet it religious needs without killing wild eagles. Sighting the tribes capacity to raise captive birds,*substitutes*feathers, or use an eagle that died of natural causes in*their*ceremonies.

According to Harvey Spoonhunter, a tribal elder and former chairman of the Northern Arapaho*Business*Council, “It Has been since the*beginning*of time with us, and we respectfully*utilize*the eagle in our ceremonies, We got to use the eagle, which we consider a message to the Creator.”

Bald were removed the endangered species list in 2007.
