Question by : Has anyone ever heard of the Republic of Lakotah, a sovereign state within the boundaries of…?
…the United States? I was
surprised to learn that you need a passport to get in and out of this land within our borders. It covers thousands of square miles which includes areas of North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming and Montana. Becoming a citizen of the Republic requires that you renounce your U.S. citizenship. So what gives here? It is secession although they may not call it by that name. Isn’t this one of the reasons the Civil War was fought? Should something like this be allowed to happen within our borders?

    I took a class on contemporary native american culture and was very interested to learn of this development. Most non native american people don’t know that many tribes still retain 19th century treaty rights. For instance the Lac du Flambeau Chippewa tribe in wisconsin maintains its spearfishing rights despite great controversy from non native americans. In regards to the Republic of Lakotah, the tribes assert that they have the right to secede from the treaty of fort laramie due to the US government not protecting Indian rights. I personally do not believe that the US government will allow this but you can find more information on the wikipedia republic of Lakotah page. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republic_of_Lakota

    It does upset. On reading the question the net was searched, and a dozen sites showed some information. There was a map and at other place ‘North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming and Nebraska were listed. Lakotah nation!
    Need a deep breath, and a little rest to think over.
    How the Intelligence wing of USA working on this?

    The Lakotah Sioux have a reservation similar to the Navajo in Arizona, New Mexico and Utah, in which they have certain self governing rights, but they do not possess soverignty and are ultimately responsible to the overall Governing authority of the United States of America.
