Milton Born With A Tooth

Milton Born With A Tooth is a Canadian political activist for First Nations rights.

He first came to widespread notoriety in 1990, when the Alberta government sought to dam the Oldman River, which would have flooded Peigan burial grounds. Born With A Tooth led the Blackfoot warrior society in diverting the river away from the dam.

On August 2 of that year, a heavily-armed Royal Canadian Mounted Police contingent arrived, and shots were fired. Born With A Tooth was arrested and charged with endangering lives and assaulting eighty officers. He was convicted and spent three years in prison.
