    Can’t you hear the voice of the Lakota National Soul in the 92-year old grandmother?

    I think that the situation that the Lakota Nation is in will not be resolved until the Uniform States are overthrown and replaced by the Threefold Republic, where instead of a single National Government, there are three sovereign sectors for Economic, Political, and Cultural affairs.

    The Lakota People, and all the Original Peoples, will achieve Cultural independence, with their own Olympic teams, and membership in UNESCO alongside the statal nations such as France and Switzerland.

    I offer illustrations of this Threefold Idea as it will relate to the indigenous nations in North America here:

    In particular, here is a picture of the Dakota-Lakota-Nakota Country following the Separation of Nation and State, with their entire Ancestral Territory being internationally recognized as the Cultural Service Area of the sovereign non-profit, non-governmental Oceti Sakowin cultural organization:

    Please feel free to share this with others, and if you have any suggestions for improvement, clarification, or revolutionary collaboration, I’d be glad to hear from you.

    This is a conflict that I’ve never even heard of before. I loved the grandmother saying, “i’m a generation builder on a nation”.

    When I say overthrow, I mean peaceful, but vigorous (r)evolution in the lifetime of this very generation.
