Lakota Oyate: Recovering Lakota territory after trail of broken treaties

The American West No More, Lakota Nation Releases National Map - Lakota Natural Land-Base Divides 5 U.S. State Boundaries

"As long as the grass grows, and the rivers flow, this land will always be yours."
- Lakota Freedom Delegation

A continuing effort of the Lakota Freedom Delegation, released a map of national boundaries which will force state and Federal government in five states to begin the process of planning their governmental initiatives without tens of thousands of acres of land. Meanwhile, the Lakota people begin the process of recovering their natural land-base without U.S. government interference. Protection of sacred sites and confrontation with exploitative government and private enterprises that have been removing or polluting Lakota lands comes to the forefront. The map, which can be found at www.lakotaoyate.com provides an initial glimpse into a free and independent Lakota.
"The free Lakota nation is regaining the original natural territory of its unceeded land," said Lakota Freedom Delegate Canupa Gluha Mani (Duane Martin Sr.). "The white man promised that as long as the grass grows and the rivers flow this land will always be yours[the Lakota]. This promise still lives within the heart of the Lakota Nation."

The northern and western boundaries of Lakota run along the Yellowstone and Big Horn rivers in North Dakota and Montana. The southern boundaries run along the North Platte and Platte rivers in Wyoming and Nebraska, while the eastern boundary of Lakota shares the bank of the Missouri River. Canupa Gluha Mani added, "The He Sapa will never be for sale, its just returning to its natural owners, the Lakota Independent Nation." Lakota Oyate emerges from the work of the Lakota Freedom Delegation and continues to ensure the voice of the oyate - the Elders, children and all people - are respected and heard in the rebirth of the Lakota Nation.

Good to see news form America that's not presidency-related...
All this is being ignored by the press in the UK, who are just taking the stuff about which of four rich people will be the next president, as if that was all that was going on. Keep reporting the real stuff!
