A Distant Trumpet: Army Celebrates Thanksgiving by Ordering Sioux Camp to Disperse

Via comment by Cav Med on The Appalachian Messenger November 25, 2016

For the Sioux, this is being treated like trespassers on their own land, and according to the 1851 and 1868 Fort Laramie Treaties, this IS their own land

Spotted Tail, Siŋté Glešká of the Brulé Lakota (1823-1881) lamented, “This war was brought upon us by the children of the Great Father who came to take our land from us without price.”

Some things never change. One of those things is the United States government’s treatment of Native Americans.

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers sent a letter on Friday to Standing Rock Tribal Chairman Dave Archambault informing him that the Corps is ordering the Sioux’s Oceti Sakowin camp, the center of protests against the DAPL, to disperse by closing the “corps-managed federal property north of the Cannonball River to all public use and access” starting December 5.

  1. Well, the Veterans are suppose to show up on Dec. 4th to
    help the Native Americans and do hope there are many.
    There is no such thing as Fed. land.

    1. Except DC which Maryland and Virginia gave to the government, but which should be taken back! :)

  2. Egads! If we took DC back, where would the parasites go.
    DC is a sewer.
