Lakota Indians Establish Their Own Country Within the United States

(NaturalNews) During the week of December 17 - 19, 2007, Lakota Indian leaders traveled to Washington DC and withdrew from the constitutionally mandated treaties to become a free and independent country. They do so in a fully honest, legal, and ethical manner.

"We are no longer citizens of the United States of America and all those who live in the five-state area that encompasses our country are free to join us," long-time Indian rights activist Russell Means told a handful of reporters and a delegation from the Bolivian embassy. All were gathered in a church in a run-down neighborhood of Washington for a news conference. In other words, the Republic of Lakota is now inviting everyone within their country borders to join them and to live free and create a new government based on the laws of brotherhood.

Lakota leaders delivered a message to the United States State Department in December of 2007, announcing they were unilaterally withdrawing from treaties they signed with the federal government of the United States.

The Lakota activists rightly describe treaties Native American's signed with the United States as "worthless words on worthless paper," because the United States never holds up their end of the treaty.

One such treaty is the Treaty of Fort Laramie, September 17, 1851. Article three of the treaty states, "United States bind themselves to protect the aforesaid Indian nations against the commission of all depredations by the people of the said United States, after the ratification of this treaty."

The Treaty of Fort Laramie from April 29, 1868 states, "The United States agrees that the following district of country... [describes a large geographic boundary] ... set apart for the absolute and undisturbed use and occupation of the Indians herein named..."

Upon these documents and others, the various tribes in the now Republic of Lakotah were guaranteed exclusive use and control of their lands in exchange for safe passage along the Oregon Trail.

Article six of the U.S. Constitution upholds treaties as the supreme law of the land, "This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding."

The Republic of Lakotah withdrawal letter states, "The continuing violations of these treaties' terms have resulted in the near annihilation of our people physically, spiritually, and culturally."

In instances across the United States, our own government has completely betrayed and murdered countless numbers of Native Americans.

"After 150 years of colonial enforcement, when you back people into a corner there is only one alternative. That alternative is to bring freedom back into existence by taking it back - back to the love of freedom, to our life-way." Canupa Gluha Mani

The first thing I thought when I saw this news was, can I move in?

In a letter dated January 1st, 2008 addressed to the US government, and to Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, and various counties, the Republic of Lakotah announced plans to retrieve the land stolen by the US government. For private citizens within the boundaries, the Republic of Lakotah writes, "We wish to deal with the American people in good faith and in a win-win manner." Again, the win-win idea includes encouraging people within the boundaries to join their country which perhaps will include things like, a fair and favorable tax rate. The Republic of Lakotah land map can be seen here (www.republicoflakotah.com/map.html) .

The Republic of Lakotah move is a hopeful sign for us all. A sign that we can collectively reclaim what we believe is rightfully ours. A government that is truly for the people, of the people, and by the people.

This is a far stretch to the broken and bloated U.S. government we see today, which promotes disease across the land and violates the very people and earth that sustains us all.

I end with restating the saying that underlies some beliefs of many Indigenous groups across the globe, as well as the Republic of Lakotah:

Mitaku Oyasin! (We are all related!) .
