As N/DN/D/Lakota Citizens, we maintain our "supreme law" rights under the 1851 Treaty of Fort Laramie of our "supreme" and total rights of ownership to the entire Missouri River that runs through our ancient and 1851 Treaty Homelands, as protected through Article VI of the United States Constitution, that states, "Treaties made with Indian Nations shall be the supreme law of the land, with the judges in every state bound thereby, any thing in the laws of any state to the contrary, notwithstanding. All executive and judicial officers of the several states, shall be bound by oath and affirmation, to support this Constitution."

Currently, members of the executive branch of South Dakota state government is attempting to violate Article VI of the U.S. Constitution and the 1851 Treaty by publicly proclaiming ownership of our Missouri River in his disputes with the Army Corp of Engineeers over so-called "excess water" retained by damns within the state.

This verbal violation is a direct assualt on the Constitution, the Treaty, and the N/DN/D/Lakota Nation and Peoples, as well as the Tribal Councils and General Council of the Treaty Nations, and must hereby cease to inflict genocidal pain, suffering, and anxiety upon these Treaty Peoples.

The fine for genocide violations is one (1) year in prison and a one (1) million dollar fine (see Genocide "Proxmire" Act of 1988).
