Will commodity cheese etc. be more available now?
Washington D.C. – Lakota Sioux Indian representatives declared sovereign nation status today in Washington D.C. following Monday’s withdrawal from all previously signed treaties with the United States Government. The withdrawal, hand delivered to Daniel Turner, Deputy Director of Public Liaison at the State Department, immediately and irrevocably ends all agreements between the Lakota Sioux Nation of Indians and the United States Government outlined in the 1851 and 1868 Treaties at Fort Laramie Wyoming. http://www.lakotafreedom.com/ Ending the BIA and USPHS expense of cradle to grave health and dental care, road maintenance on the Rez, public housing loans with other grants weighed against border crossings and sobriety tests at the gates while giving human beings what they want. Sounds like a win win. I think the Lakota are right to get out while the getting is good. Maybe those USPHS hospitals would make good health centers for the elderly? Sage Seeker: The people who lost their land and the people who took it from them have all been dead a century or more. We're all born naked, natives to the land where we were born and conditions existing at the times of our births. I never stole anything from a Native American, and no Native American alive today had anything stolen from him 150 years ago. Sorry The voice of: The NA discussion boards almost have a motto about the Rez, whichever one it might be: "Where commodity cheese RULES". The Santa Ana tribe [600 tribal members] just built a giant [USDA tribal] commodity distribution center next door to their [one of the largest casinos in New Mexico] Santa Ana Star Casino. Hope that clears the matter up for you.

I don't know the ins and outs -- but I would like to see the natives of the United States become Americans of native heritage. In Michigan, they've become nothing more than a gambling coalition -- if the native isn't of a given tribe, they don't belong to the "family". Reservation stands for government support or... More

I've come back to read this question several times now and I'm still not sure I understand what commodity cheese has to do with Lakota Sioux Indians. Is this satire, sarcasm or have I missed some obscure point? Sorry for my denseness.

It will never happen number one !...the legal aspects would take over 50 years. In that time minimal US funding would go into that territory.The infrastructure (roads,bridges, airports etc, etc) would collapse.Microwave antennas that supply vital information would be re-routed.How about "airspace" , it's land locked...

I just talked to some of my friends and we have a one-way ticket for you to come down here to our reservation and we'll be glad to explain all this to you since you seem to be so ignorant!!! Like I said one-way, you won't need to worry about the return trip!!!

Thanks for using Christmastime for exploding your cheap shots on the Indian nations. I won't waste my time trying to explain it to you because you have a sad frame of mind. Cal. has not had "commodities" for many years. Go visit some Navajo reses.
