For any of you who might not keep up with the Western world and Native America, I thought I would pass along some very vital info on the Lakotah Nation. This is straight in from Indian country. For any who don’t know, the Lakotah Nation is what many Americans call the Sioux Nation. Lakotah heros include Sitting Bull, Spotted Tail and Crazy Horse.
Right before Christmas, the Lakotah Nation (due to continuous and extreme treaty violations, which started about 150 years ago) declared its independence from the United States. In a statement very much like the Declaration of Independence from our own Founding Fathers, the Lakotah Nation is attempting to gain back its freedom from what has become oppression on the part of the government on their reservation.
I applaud their courage in taking such a step and I wish them success and hope that 2008 finds the Lakotah Nation doing well and free. For more information, go to www.republicoflakotah.com where you can read their own declaration of independence.
What are your thoughts on the matter?
