1851 Traverse Des Sioux Treaty Conference

I've picked a date for the 1851 Treaty Conference, December 4, 2010.  It will be at the Redwood Public Library in Redwood Falls, Minnesota.  The conference is scheduled for 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.  The Cansayapi Tewahe Kunsi's are going to bring lunch. But otherwise all of the attendees are responsible for their own expenses.  The agenda is a two point agenda as we will be short on time.
1.) Open discussion on the 1805-1858 treaties between the United States and the Dakota Oyate.
2.) Open discussion on the International Court of Crimes. The indictment of the US for crimes against the   Dakota Nation and other federal violations of the treaties.

I've asked Chief Arvol Looking Horse, 19th Generation Keeper of the Sacred Calf Pipe to come if he can, as he gets very busy.

I've also asked the Tituwan Lakota Oyate Committee/International Northern Hemisphere Indigenous Summit from Lower Brule to attend.  They are working along the same lines on behalf of the Lakota Nation.

The closing prayer will be said by Yvonne Leith, Upper Sioux Community elder.

I will post more as it occurs.
