A New Nation?

Check this AFP site out. It’s not Canadian, but does have potential effects and ramifications for Canada. It is also related to recent articles posted on Canadian Fermentation.

Leaders of the Lakota, found in parts of the Dakotas and Montanna and beyond, have withdrawn from treaties with the United States. They claim they are no longer citizens of the U.S. and will soon be distributing their own passports and driver’s licenses. Well known native activist, Russel Means — who also stared in the movie Last of the Mohicans — is part of the leadership who initiated the separation of the Lakota lands.

I’m surprised, in a sarcastic way, that I haven’t seen more news about this.

If anyone has anymore information or news about this, please pass it on.

(Here’s a link to the Lakota pain-relief site, just for shits and giggles)

    I am Lakota/Ottawa and the Head Editor of Native American newspaper Medicine Winds News. I interviewed Phyllis Young on december 19th about two hours after the declaration of independence was made to the State Dep’t. Phyllis was callling all Lakotas to come home, in that invitation she included non-card holding Lakotas, and non-natives who believe in our cause. If you would like to make a comment to the delegation via our publication please feel free to contact us at medicinewindsnews@yahoo.com I am also willing to field questions if anyone has them.

    They have a web site (LakotaFreedom.com) that gives all the latest information on their newly declared independence. It remains to be seen how the U.S. government is going to respond.
