Democratic Presidential Candidate Kerry's sister, Diana Kerry, to visit Blackfeet Reservation


Diana Kerry, younger sister of Democratic Presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry, plans to visit the Hi-Line and Indian reservations in Montana this weekend to talk with community members and tribal members about getting out the vote and the need for change in the coming election.

She will be at the Blackfeet Community College student commons on Sunday, Oct. 17 between 3-5 p.m. The community is invited to meet Diana.

Her visit to Montana's Indian Reservations and her meeting with Tribal Leaders demonstrates the importance Senator John Kerry places on the Indian vote in Montana as well as his respect toward all people.

"Diana Kerry is a strong advocate for her brother John and his plans to make America stronger at home and in the world," said Carol Juneau, co-chair of the Kerry Montana Steering Committee. "She'll talk to Montanans across the Hi-Line and in western Montana about the need for change. And she'll talk to tribal members across Montana's hi-line about getting out the vote and John Kerry's new direction in Native American policy that honors sovereignty, protects tribal assets and property and creates jobs and boosts economic development."

Plans are being finalized for Diana Kerry's busy weekend including stops at Fort Belknap, Rocky Boy, Blackfeet, and the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes as well as a visit with the Little Shell Tribe in Great Falls.

Call Stan Juneau 338-5689 for more information on the Browning visit or Bill Lombardi who is running the Kerry Campaign in Montana at 459-8860.
