Treaty Speaking...say the first line throws the Yanktonai under the Cavalry hooves...

The 1868 Fort Laramie Treaty has this safeguard against the sellout tribes; it is now time we have use it to protect our rights as Hunkpapa to have our own reservation and our own sovereigns to exist as the Hunkpapa...the first section deals with criminality and unauthorized selling out as has happened, it is crooked thievery. Face the truth on Standing Rock...the North Dakota side has never did anything for the South Dakota except for selling meth...just one voice and that voice will become a roar, and the sellouts will be begging the government to send Custer to protect them from the truth that they are nothing but thieves stealing all the way from Sunday...

ARTICLE I.

From this day forward all war between the parties to this agreement shall for ever cease. The government of the United States desires peace, and its honor is hereby pledged to keep it. The Indians desire peace, and they now pledge their honor to maintain it.

If bad men among the whites, or among other people subject to the authority of the United States, shall commit any wrong upon the person or property of the Indians, the United States will, upon proof made to the agent, and forwarded to the Commissioner of Indian Affairs at Washington city, proceed at once to cause the offender to be arrested and punished according to the laws of the United States, and also reimburse the injured person for the loss sustained.

If bad men among the Indians shall commit a wrong or depredation upon the person or property of nay one, white, black, or Indian, subject to the authority of the United States, and at peace therewith, the Indians herein named solemnly agree that they will, upon proof made to their agent, and notice by him, deliver up the wrongdoer to the United States, to be tried and punished according to its laws, and, in case they willfully refuse so to do, the person injured shall be reimbursed for his loss from the annuities, or other moneys due or to become due to them under this or other treaties made with the United States; and the President, on advising with the Commissioner of Indian Affairs, shall prescribe such rules and regulations for ascertaining damages under the provisions of this article as in his judgment may be proper, but no one sustaining loss while violating the provisions of this treaty, or the laws of the United States, shall be reimbursed therefor.
