What’s happening with the Lakotah people since they announced their withdrawal from the United States just prior to the holidays 2007? I’m actually concerned about their well-being especially since there has been no mainstream media news on their announcement and no acknowledgment from the U.S.G.
For those ‘not in the know’, their announcement is big news since they plan on reclaiming territory that is part of a five state area of the United States (see above map). They have also pulled out of all their treaties with the U.S.G. citing “continuing violations.”
I believe that it is important that the American people are aware of the Lakotah’s actions so that they don’t come to harm because of their actions, which are peaceful. The Lakotah have no desire to cause ‘war’ but are attempting to work through peaceful means in reclaiming the territories taken from them and gaining back the dignities stripped from them as indigenous people of this country. I think they speak for all indigenous people of this country in so many ways…
So I, for one, will be watching the peaceful Lakotah people as they take on the aggressor U.S.G. in this situation. Will David win out over Goliath?
