KKK Surfaces in Montana Town Neighborhood of Native Americans


Ku Klux Klan fliers have surfaced in the North-Central Montana town of Havre this week, promoting a neighborhood watch group. This morning's Missoulian reports that the particular neighborhood where the fliers appeared includes a number of Native American families.

"Neighborhood Watch. You can sleep well tonight knowing the UKA (United Klans of America) is awake," read the fliers, which were placed in clear plastic baggies, weighted with small stones and placed outside a number of homes.

"I have never seen anything like this," said one resident. "We sometimes had racial problems, but nothing like this."

A spokesman for the Montana chapter of the United Klans of America confirmed to the Missoulian that his organization was indeed in Havre but did not provide any details.

"What do you do other than say I don't appreciate it?" said Havre City Councilwoman Bonnie Parenteau.
