Um. . . What?


A delegation of Lakota leaders has delivered a message to the State Department, and said they were unilaterally withdrawing from treaties they signed with the federal government of the US, some of them more than 150 years old.


Why am I hearing about this only from an Austrialian News Site?

i was actually thinking about that last year. i mean, other countries that sign peace treaties re-neg and/or withdraw from the treaty..what's the difference? i doubt they will get the outcome or respect they deserve, but good for them for trying..more should!

yes, although there are some interesting twists, like the UN Resolution granting indigenous peoples a *lot* more say regarding their lands etc, which could end up causing the U.S. Serious issues on the world stage, not that our reputation could get much worse, more of it would be an interesting way for the new administration to *improve* our repuation.

There is no such thing as free press. They need their jobs too.
