Secession! Lakota Sioux Nation Leaves the US (from Drudge)

I don't know if this means anything?

President Barack Obama has an unexpected foreign policy problem – in the Western United States. The Lakota Sioux nation has seceded from the United States, according to a story on the anti-American website La Voz de Aztlan.

“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 Native American radical leader Russell Means said. The move potentially impacts the states of Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana and Wyoming.

Drudge is a sleep

As usual Drudge is a sleep at the wheel. This is very very old news and Russell Means maybe dead by now. It was a good thought however most of the real Indians don't live on reservations. Those on reservations are wanting to get a handout from the B LM and anytime you ask for a benefit from the Masters you always have to do their bidding.

Lakota Sioux Secede from the Union–NOT!

It’s a hot story, and even Drudge posted it at the top of his page over the weekend. But it’s all a PR stunt. The Lakota Sioux have not seceded from the United States. It’s just a wishful theory of Russell Means.

Well four years ago nobody cared

Now that they are booming with oil - uh oh - better watch for those drones - LOL
Are they accepting applications to the tribe? Do we have any member on here that would sponsor me - I beg - LOL

Seminoles

The Seminoles are SOLD OUT. Just read their constitution. They can't *HIT until the Dept. of Interior tells them to squat. Living on a Federal Reserve-ation is a sign that native sovereignty has been relinquished.

Russel Means

Ok, I'm from SD. This doesnt mean anything and Russel Means is a dick. Just google his name and check out his activities for the past decade. Just Sayin'. He doesn't speak for the Lakota Sioux. Few of them want anything to do with him.

It's a big blue world!

Hoka Hey!

Seminoles never officially conquered.

Today, the 21st century descendants of the Seminole proudly note the Seminole were never officially conquered. That is one source of the nation's sovereign rights.

this happened in 2007 and I

this happened in 2007 and I think it was simply ignored by the us govt. There is a question whether or not this group represents the majority of the Lakota people since they were not elected.

the rEVOLution will not be televised

Bum of a link!

I accessed the link to CNS News. There's nothing on the site searching for secession, Lakota, Sioux or Russell Means that leads to a story about the secession of the Sioux Nation from the United States. Was it taken down??

It only takes one to KEEP AMERICANS FREE. Know your duties & rights as a juror. Stop the unconstitutional conviction of innocents in federal custody. The Fully Informed Jury CALL 1-800-TEL-JURY www.fija.org IMMEDIATELY if not sooner. It's that important.

Try this link

Thank you

Yes it is a good link.

What will the feds do?

They'll take these folks out with some drones! That is, after accusing them of being terrorists. It will make BRILLIANT television. Obama will look tough just in time for the election....

What would the Founders do?

I saw this yesterday

All the articles are from 2007. This is OLD news.

Ron Paul is My President

I believe the correct term is “withdrew.”

…Quite a few years ago. Other aboriginal nations have done the same.

Lakota?

I thought all Native American reservations were not part of the US government. Is that not why they have casinos, that the rest of the states, except Nevada, cannot have?

On Reservations

If Native Americans consent to living on a Federal Reserve-ation, they have essentially sold out their sovereignty for money. The Bureau of Indian Affairs oversees (manages)NDN so called sovereignty. In actuality, the NDNs must answer to the Interior Department who decides how sovereign they are...which isn't sovereignty. They are kidding the NDNs and the non NDNs alike. It's a scam. The BIA even manages the outcome of their elections...

plenty of casinos

in nj.
and federal bootlickers as well.

I seceded a long time ago. I'm sovereign anywhere I go.

Lakota Indian nation announces secession from U.S. – AP

WASHINGTON (AFP) — The Lakota Indians, who gave the world legendary warriors Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse, have withdrawn from treaties with the United States, leaders said Wednesday.

“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, gathered in a church in a run-down neighborhood of Washington for a news conference.

A delegation of Lakota leaders delivered a message to the State Department on Monday, announcing they were unilaterally withdrawing from treaties they signed with the federal government of the United States, some of them more than 150 years old.

Interesting

What are the borders of it? Anyone got a map?

Obedience to God is resistance to tyrants.

They have a name

It's called the Lakota Republic. They live much better than most of the rest of this country, as far as freedom goes. They are still young, like our country was at one time.

Are they accepting new members?

I have heard the Indians are subject to Tribal Law instead of Federal Law.
