GREAT FALLS — Leases to allow drilling for oil and gas near a mountain that is sacred to the Blackfeet Indian tribe have been canceled, Blackfeet officials said, days before a protest was to be held at Chief Mountain.

The mountain on the reservation’s border with Glacier National Park near the Canada line is protected for the spiritual use of the tribe. The Blackfeet Tribal Business Council’s approval of the mineral leases earlier this year became public last week when a conservation activist posted the documents online, the Great Falls Tribune reported in a story published Thursday.
