Sitting Bull's people break away from US



THE Lakota Indians, who gave the world legendary warriors Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse, have withdrawn from treaties with the US.

"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 delivered a message to the State Department and said they were unilaterally withdrawing from treaties they signed with the Federal Government, some of them more than 150 years old.

The group also visited the Bolivian, Chilean, South African and Venezuelan embassies, and said they would continue on their diplomatic mission and take it overseas.

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 US citizenship, Mr Means said.

The treaties signed with the US were merely "worthless words on worthless paper," he 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,'' he said.

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 US 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", Mr Means said.

One "duck" moved into place in September, when the UN adopted a non-binding declaration on the rights of indigenous peoples - despite opposition from the US, 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,'' said Phyllis Young, who helped organise the first international conference on indigenous rights in Geneva in 1977.

The US "annexation'' of native American land has resulted in once proud tribes such as the Lakota becoming mere "facsimiles of white people,'' Mr Means said.

Oppression at the hands of the US 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 US; infant mortality is five times higher than the US average; and unemployment is rife, according to the Lakota freedom movement's website.

Good luck to them. :-)

I hope that they will get their own homeland.

Free Lakotaland!
Free Hawaii!
Free Dixie!

And all the others too... :-)

Here is good opinion from American White Separatist:

Alıntı
These brave People should be admired for trying to stand up for the rights of their kin!
They have every right to be independent of the US and its oppressive treatment.
You may look at Native Americans and make fun of them if it makes you feel better about yourself. They have been a defeated race for over 130 years.
Remember they stood up to overwhelming odds and fought with stone age weapons and tactics against some of the best trained military forces of the time period. They lost but fought like brave men. I am not of their race or creed but I admire their bravery.
They have been beaten down and persecuted. Go ahead and make fun but realize the same forces that keep them down are the ones that want to keep you down as well. Take a look at the comparisons I have noted below.

Drunk Indian laying on the curb = Redneck flying the Rebel flag.
Indian living a trailer on welfare = White trash living in a trailer on welfare!
Indian fought the US invasion of his homeland = My forefathers fought the Union invasion of the Southern Homeland!
Indian joins militant movement that stands up for his rights to be separate and free and racially pure = White man joins the local Militia or Klan group.
ZOG wants to control us all. If a Red man can keep his culture and religion and lands intact and keep out those who threaten him then he is a threat to our current oppressive Government and no threat to those who wish to be free.
I wish them the best of luck!! If they can make it more power to them.
