The Fat Takers Pipeline: Native People, the KXL, the Cowboy and Indian Alliance and the Constitution by Winona LaDuke | Last Real Indians

The l868 Fort Laramie Treaty is the treaty between the US and the Lakota Nation. Oceti Sakowin treaty territory is overlapped by Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, and Nebraska. These lands and that treaty are sacred to the Lakota, and across Indian country tribal leaders and non-Indians are demanding that those treaties be recognized, since they are the “supreme law of the land” according to Article VI of the US constitution.The mid February summit of the Lakota and their allies reaffirmed opposition to the black snake. Gary Dorr from the Nez Perce Tribe in Idaho talked about opposition to the pipeline and his tribe’s legal position on the tar sands. The Nez Perce tribe has already used its treaty rights to block the transport of so-called megaloads of mining equipment, headed to Alberta’s tar sands through its territory. The tribe launched blockades and won a court battle to stop the shipments from traversing its lands.
