“I’m thrilled that Chairman Old Coyote will continue to demonstrate his leadership on coal as a keynote speaker at Montana Energy 2016,” Daines stated. “Chairman Old Coyote has an unparallelled perspective as a leader of one of Montana’s tribe’s that depends largely on coal for tax revenue and jobs. Chairman Old Coyote has dedicated his life to serving Crow Nation and I look forward to hearing his important perspective on the future of Indian coal.”
