NATURAL NEWS– During the week of December 17 – 19, 2007, Lakota Indian leaders
traveled to Washington DC and withdrew from the constitutionally
mandated treaties to become a free and independent country. They did so
in a fully honest, legal, and ethical manner.
“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.
All were gathered
in a church in a run-down neighborhood of Washington for a news
conference. In other words, the Republic of Lakota is now inviting
everyone within their country borders to join them and to live free and
create a new government based on the laws of brotherhood.
Lakota leaders delivered a message to the United States State Department in December of 2007, announcing they were unilaterally withdrawing from treaties they signed with the federal government of the United States.
The Lakota activists rightly describe treaties Native American’s signed with the United States as “worthless words on worthless paper,” because the United States never holds up their end of the treaty.
