Crow ready to ride in D.C.
Of The Gazette Staff

Carl Venne, Crow tribal chairman, is one of 24 Crow riders who will take part in today's inaugural parade.

"I think this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for us," Venne said Monday from Washington, D.C.

"My tribe is very happy to represent all Indians in America and also the state of Montana," Venne said Monday morning by phone. "We're very fortunate that they picked us."

The Crow Tribe already has a special link to President-elect Barack Obama. When the candidate made his May 19 visit to Crow Agency, the tribe adopted Obama and gave him the name "One who helps people throughout the land."
