The American Red Cross of Montana has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Crow Nation.

The MOU formalizes a working relationship between the tribe and the Red Cross in preparing for and responding to disasters. A signing took place on Saturday in Crow Agency during the tribe’s 2014 Crow Native Days celebration.

This is the first agreement between the American Red Cross of Montana and a tribal nation.

The American Red Cross and the Crow Tribe have a long history of working cooperatively to assist individuals and families who have been impacted by disasters. This agreement builds on their current relationship and facilitates a more coordinated response, according to a news release from the American Red Cross of Montana.  

The ceremonial event took place at the Edison Memorial Complex in Crow Agency, during the Ultimate Lady Warrior Challenge. The Honorable Chairman Darrin Old Coyote and Montana Red Cross CEO Rod Kopp signed the agreement on behalf of their respective organizations.
