Notice to All Foreign Governments and Private Owners of Real Estate within the Republic of Lakotah

by Kahentinetha Horn

Colonialism is a disease. It is characterized by fantasies, delusions, greed and destruction of everything in its path. Something like the “Cookie Monster” that eats everything up and just leaves a few crumbs behind. For the past few centuries the controllers of Europe have been severely afflicted. In the 1800s they thought they could meet in Berlin and decide who owned every corner of the earth.

They didn’t even ask the Peoples who lived there. During the 20th century some of these European megalomaniacs had a lapse of sanity. The disease went into a short remission. For a brief moment war didn’t make sense to them. They founded the “League of Nations”, which folded because they were not sincere. Their delusions were so strong that they didn’t bother talking with other nations. After all, “We’re the only “master civilized race” in the whole wide world”, they told themselves.

They kept on making wars among each other. World War II involved everyone due to the ravages from the colonial disease. Then there was another short remission. The United Nations was founded to overcome the addiction to war and greed. Its founding charter declared that all humans are equal. Some of the European megalomaniacs masked their delusions about being the “master race” of the world. Some non-European states were admitted as full members of the UN, but the “master race” kept control. The colonial disease erupted to the surface like a huge festering boil. “What have we done?” they exclaimed in horror. “We can only let colonially defined states join us!” So it was that Indigenous nations were excluded.

Then the colonial disease mutated and took on new forms. Some “contagions”, like the United States and the Soviet Union began to believe they could be masters of the universe. 160 wars were provoked worldwide as a result of the “divide and conquer” mutation. Then new forms of “colonialism” erupted in the business world. Mega-sized international corporations started trying to gobble up all people, governments and resources as if there was no tomorrow.

Instead of curing colonization, the UN developed its own strains of the disease. The addicts used it as a tool. European institutions [like the World Bank, International Monetary Fund and others] forced themselves onto Indigenous Peoples to rape our land, labor and material resources. War was promoted as “peacekeeping”. The international court confirmed that no people could be absorbed into another state without the free and fully informed consent of the majority of the people concerned. The colonial poison spread. Indigenous peoples were unlawfully incorporated into the boundaries of the “invaders”. The UN tried to fudge the issue by establishing a separate “Indigenous Forum”.

The states most severely infected are the Americas, Australia and New Zealand which have been populated by the contaminated Europeans and other immigrants. They brought colonial and other diseases with them. They reinforced the delusion that they own everything that had been stolen during the height of the colonial epidemic. The disorder has to be eradicated by decolonization. They have to work out a solution and a reasonable plan for regaining their mental and social health. They have to return everything they stole. Otherwise this sickness is going to take them on a fast track to total destruction. We have struggled to find a cure ever since the colonial “plague” wiped out 115 million of our people in the Americas. We have repeatedly asked to be left alone. We have retreated to avoid contamination.

The Europeans continue to chase their addiction by finding more victims. What will happen when they run out? They will either kick the habit or they will die. It looks like they will continue to be driven by demons of greed. Their own scientists tell them they have brought the environment perilously close to collapse. They don’t seem to be able to stop themselves. They continue to tear apart and pollute every nook, vale and ancient plane of the environment. They seed clouds with toxic chemicals and create continents of garbage in the ocean. Lakes are full of bubbling sewage of chemical residue.

The lush forests that once sheltered our ancestors have been felled. They have destroyed the sacred spawning grounds of fish, the nesting grounds of birds and the habitats of our animal protectors. The cities that the Europeans were once so proud of are flooded with social, political, economic and other toxins. Yet the disease continues to hold them in its deadly grip. Like junkies they keep trying to infect everybody. The habit of ignoring and defaming Indigenous Peoples continues. We try to coax these colonial “low lifes” out of their madness.

They’re making a “hell on earth” for everybody! Recently the Lakota decided to give the colonists another chance to come to their senses. They put out a “Declaration of Continuing Independence” on December 17, 2007. It’s nothing new. According to ancient principles of international law that were defined and confirmed by the UN, the Lakota and all Indigenous Peoples continue to be independent and sovereign. The colonists did not respect the law because they’re sick and deluded. But that is no excuse.

There are signs that many people who were born in colonial society have developed a resistance to the disease. The Lakota Declaration is attempting to strengthen the process needed to overcome the illness. It is offering members of the colonial society a reality check and a chance to start treating everyone with equality and respect. They’ll have to leave their “false hierarchical high” and fill that void some other way! Can they rehabilitate themselves and begin the long slow process of recovering from their addiction and escape this ravaging disease?

Please find attached the Lakota “Notice to All Foreign Governments and Private Owners of Real Estate” within their Republic. It proposes a new beginning for all Indigenous peoples of the Americas. The declaration has been recognized as such by over 140 nations in the world so far. It is a good way to begin the new year!

Notice to All Foreign Governments and Private Owners of Real Estate within the Republic of Lakotah

TO:

The United States of America;

The States of: Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota and Nebraska;

The County and Municipal Governments Operating within the Republic of Lakotah; and All Private Owners of Real Estate within the Republic of Lakotah

Lakotah, through its government, have appointed representatives to withdraw from all the treaties with the United States of America.

Lakotah, through such representatives, have formally withdrawn from all agreements and treaties with the United States of America. The reinstitution of our freedom and independence is found in law.

Lakotah has reclaimed sovereignty as a nation and over its traditional lands.

Despite many years of repeated bad faith on the part of the United States government towards the Lakotah People, the Lakotah hold no animosity toward the American people, most of whom have had no part in the actions of their government. We wish to deal with the American people in good faith and in a win-win manner.

While we have the right to impose liens on all of the real estate in our country, we prefer to come to resolutions with you all with out resorting to such measures. Accordingly, at this time, we are only declaring liens on real estate held by governments foreign to the Republic of Lakotah, but not on real estate held by private parties.

The Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States of America and the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties substantiate this freedom.

Lakotah welcomes the opportunity to meet and discuss this matter. We are in the process of scheduling meetings and will issue public invitations. Should you desire input with regard to scheduling these meetings, please contact us at the above.

Russell Means,
Chief Facilitator
Provisional Government Republic of Lakotah


Republic of Lakotah

Delusion among the Lakota
Russell Means - what an idiot. America's natives behaved the same way among themselves for 12,000 years before they saw their first "colonist." Then some of them chose to join the colonists against their common enemy. Pretending Indians lived in harmony among themselves is revisionist drivel. Grow up. You're not going anywhere.

N CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
