Descendants of Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse break away from US

Thu Dec 20, 9:22 AM ET

WASHINGTON (AFP) - The Lakota Indians, who gave the world legendary warriors Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse, have withdrawn from treaties with the United States, leaders said Wednesday.

"We are no longer citizens of the United States of America and all those who live in the five-state area that encompasses our country are free to join us," long-time Indian rights activist Russell Means told a handful of reporters and a delegation from the Bolivian embassy, gathered in a church in a run-down neighborhood of Washington for a news conference.
[...]

The new country would issue its own passports and driving licences, and living there would be tax-free -- provided residents renounce their US citizenship, Means said.
[...]
Fine with me. Most don't do anything for the country anyway except maybe give people a place to gamble or buy tax-free cigarettes.

Hey! Do you Lakotas need any landscapers? There are plenty of Mexicans running around who don't want to be citizens either. Maybe they can share some space on your reservation.

Soooo...if they're no longer citizens of the US, that means none of 'em will qualify for public assistance...or Medicaid...or SSI...or food stamps...

Exactly. They will have to make their own way. Maybe open a casino or something.
