In December of 2007, the Republic of Lakotah was formed by the formal withdrawal from its Treaties of 1851 and 1868. This was the latest step in the longest running legal battle in the history of the World.

This was not a “cessation” from the United States, but a completely lawful “unilateral withdrawal” from the Treaties as permitted under the 1969 Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties, of which, the United States is a signatory.

The purpose of the Republic of Lakotah is to follow the Instructions given by the Elders at the first International Indian Treaty Council in 1974. The Council held a “Western Hemisphere” Conference at Wakpala on the Standing Rock Sioux Indian Reservation. Over 5000 delegates of 97 Indigenous Peoples from the Americas gathered. The “manifesto” that was created on that occasion supports the rights of all Indigenous Peoples to live free and take whatever actions are necessary to uphold our sovereignty. This was the largest gathering of Indian People in the 20th Century where Indians paid their own way.

It was here that the Declaration of Continuing Independence was created. The conference was attended by numerous elders, including Chief Frank Fools Crow, pictured left.

The majority spoke no English, and the rest spoke broken English. Russell Means was made a permanent trustee of the International Indian Treaty Council by the elders and the conference.

These Elders Gave the Conference and the Newly Formed International Treaty Council Two Mandates:

Liberty = Responsibility

I wonder

whether individual rights of an individual person of native American ethnicity will be violated by wise central planners among Indian elders rather than by wise central planners among affirmative-action progressives (Obama and Clinton.) The fight for liberty should be focused on moving towards free-market capitalism and not whom majority will vote for.

I love native americans

I live in Pequot country here in CT. I also spent a month building homes in Taos, New Mexico. They are the definition of down to earth. Ultimate patriots.

Peace and love to the Lakotas!
