On August 25, 2008 the Lakotah Indians will enter Sheridan Lake Recreation Area near Rapid City, South Dakota, refuse to pay the admission fee, and fish without paying a license fee. Lakotah state that they have the right to fish as stated in the 1851 Fort Laramie Treaty territory and that those rights continue today. These rights are further backed by Article VI of the Constitution of the United States of America.
Russell Means, the Chief Facilitator of the Republic of Lakotah, has stated, “After having been an occupied nation for over 150 years, we have asked the United States Government to leave our country. Meanwhile, until the United States Government leaves Lakotah territory we will take every opportunity to insist it follow its own laws and that its states do the same.”
Advance notification of the event was sent to Larry Long, the Attorney General of South Dakota.
In December 2007 the Lakotah people sent word to Washington, D.C. that they were withdrawing from all treaties and agreements as imposed on them by the U.S. Government. They also reclaimed five states that the U.S. illegally took from them and welcomed any U.S. citizens who wished to reside in Lakotah territory. The senior members of the tribe then began a worldwide campaign to elicit support for their movement.
