Lakota Indians secede from the USA and create their own nation within the US borders.

Lakota Indians Withdraw Treaties Signed With U.S. 150 Years Ago


The Lakota Indians, who gave the world legendary warriors Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse, have withdrawn from treaties with the United States. "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 said.A delegation of Lakota leaders has delivered a message to the State Department, and said they were unilaterally withdrawing from treaties they signed with the federal government of the U.S., some of them more than 150 years old.The group also visited the Bolivian, Chilean, South African and Venezuelan embassies, and would continue on their diplomatic mission and take it overseas in the coming weeks and months.Lakota country includes parts of the states of Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana and Wyoming.The new country would issue its own passports and driving licences, and living there would be tax-free - provided residents renounce their U.S. citizenship, Mr Means said.The treaties signed with the U.S. were merely "worthless words on worthless paper," the Lakota freedom activists said.Withdrawing from the treaties was entirely legal, Means said."This is according to the laws of the United States, specifically article six of the constitution,'' which states that treaties are the supreme law of the land, he said."It is also within the laws on treaties passed at the Vienna Convention and put into effect by the US and the rest of the international community in 1980. We are legally within our rights to be free and independent,'' said Means.The Lakota relaunched their journey to freedom in 1974, when they drafted a declaration of continuing independence an overt play on the title of the United States' Declaration of Independence from England.Thirty-three years have elapsed since then because "it takes critical mass to combat colonialism and we wanted to make sure that all our ducks were in a row,'' Means said.One duck moved into place in September, when the United Nations adopted a non-binding declaration on the rights of indigenous peoples despite opposition from the United States, which said it clashed with its own laws."We have 33 treaties with the United States that they have not lived by. They continue to take our land, our water, our children,'' Phyllis Young, who helped organize the first international conference on indigenous rights in Geneva in 1977, told the news conference.The U.S. "annexation'' of native American land has resulted in once proud tribes such as the Lakota becoming mere "facsimiles of white people,'' said Means.Oppression at the hands of the U.S. government has taken its toll on the Lakota, whose men have one of the shortest life expectancies - less than 44 years - in the world.Lakota teen suicides are 150 per cent above the norm for the U.S.; infant mortality is five times higher than the U.S. average; and unemployment is rife, according to the Lakota freedom movement's website.

======================================

Does this mean we can finally stop paying welfare for their sorry asses?!

As it turns out, they are embarrassed to be associated with the "home of the Chiefs".

I saw we give them back Kansas and Oklahoma. Let them keep all the white people who live there as slaves. I see no downside here.

In all fairness.. the treaties signed with the Lakota are no different than the treaties we have signed with any other country in the past or present.

I think that this could really create some interesting constitutional debates, but we'll never hear any of them because apparently is more important news that Britney Spears' sister is knocked up

Of course, if whitey hadn't come here and developed the land - they'd still be living in tents. Now that they have the almighty dollar, they're gone.

Every nation everywhere suffered attacks and war by other nations; it's just the way the world has been for oh, eternity. It's fine with me if they are seceding, just make damn sure the full boundaries apply, immigration rules, tarriffs, import/export, everything.

There are non Indian casinos in the midwest.

You'll know those....they're the ones that pay state and federal taxes, and serve beer.
