Two workers look at a gas well on the Crow Nation reservation near Crow Agency, Montana, May 30, 2008. For many decades the rival neighboring American Indian Crow and Northern Cheyenne tribes have suffered high unemployment and poverty in a remote area of one of most remote U.S. states. Now the Crow are starting to develop the energy riches on their reservation, including billions of dollars worth of coal, oil and gas, in an effort to end poverty, while the Northern Cheyenne say widespread extraction of coal or other natural resources could threaten their reservation.
