    The Lakota Sioux have declared independence from the United States.



    Parts of 5 states are now a part of a whole 'nother country.

    So, when does the casino open?
  3. Hopefully Sioux nation will attack Raider nation and Red Sox nation.

    Why was the ground at Little Big Horn all white?

    Because the Indians kept coming and coming and coming ...

    Did Custer wear an Arrow shirt?

    This doesn't change much. The Lakota reservations have always been autonomous.

    Before the battle, no.
    After the battle, yes.

    Good joke but Custer actually died of a bullet wound to the head, and another to the left side of his chest, just below the heart. His body was mutilated slightly, but otherwise left intact.

    I don't believe Russell Means speaks for the Lakota Nation as a whole. But if they can ever pull it off, with no more Federal aid, more power to them. Good luck getting the Black Hills back; they can probably have Hardin, Mont., however.

    In a somewhat related angle, let me share a story:
    My dad, when he was a college student, would often go to big dances at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis.
    He says there was this huge painting in one of the ballrooms, which depicted a large cotton field and many American Indians out and about, picking the cotton.
    The name of the painting, on a display below it, was "Custer's Last Words"

    Supposedly, perhaps, Custer lifted his eyes upwards at Little Big Horn and uttered the words, "Look at all those cotton-pickin' Indians!"
