LA GRANDE, Ore. November 2, 2016 – Eastern Oregon University’s Native American Program is hosting Charlotte Roderique, former chairwoman of the Burns Paiute Tribe, sharing perspective on the 41-day occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge earlier this year.
Roderique’s presentation on the takeover and its effect on the tribe starts at 6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 7 in the Loso Hall lobby on campus. It is free and open to the public.
On January 2, armed militants seized the refuge headquarters located in Harney County, home to the Burns Paiute Tribe. The occupation continued until February 11.
A federal jury acquitted seven defendants of the main charge following a trial that ended October 27. Of the original 26 people indicted, charges have been dropped against one, 11 others have pleaded guilty and seven are scheduled to go to trial next year.
