A New Civil War, Or Indian War, in the US

BUMP - More Information


The Argus Leader has more information in this article. It doesn't sound as radical as the AFP/Fox News original article did. So, see Lakota group pushes for new nation

Several members of the Lakota Band of the Souix Nation announced that they will be seceding from the US. They are using a UN treaty on indigenous people as their authority. I don't know how easy this is, or what benefits they will gain, or what kind of reaction the Federal Government will had. This is not really secession as they are just abrogating treaties they signed with the US Government that had established their status in the United States. I think in many ways they were treated as a separate nation already. Anyway, see Agent France Press - Descendants of Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse break away from US
