A conversation with Canupa Gluha Mani (aka Duane Martin Sr.) from the Strongheart Civil Rights Movement about the declaration (pdf) earlier this month by the Lakota Indian Nation of independence and secession from the United States. He was a member of the delegation which delivered the official documents to the U.S. State Department. The Lakota Freedom Movement has extensive documentation related to the reasons for their action.
