VISIBLE TOUCH WITH LAKOTA HISTORY

How often can you meet a memorable man who is a grandson of a famous Lakota who was born in 1822?

1862 THE LAST YEAR OF FREEDOM
The Terms of Fort Laramie concluded in 1868 granted the Lakota a single large reservation that covered parts of North Dakota, South Dakota and four other states.

and today I had the privilege of meeting Chief Red Cloud's grandson, also called Chief Red Cloud
 Strong in his words, dedicated to the welfare of his people, I was impressed with this gentleman who is still active, at age 92, fighting for justice for his people. He is very active in the treaty rights of his people. He would like the Black HIlls and the State and National parks to be returned to the Lakota and the private landowners who rushed into the ladn after the gold was discovered to pay their taxes to the Lakota. 
I AM CERTAIN HIS STRUGGLE AND DREAM WILL COME TRUE.
The American Hegemony is declining a.nd thus they are becoming humble and they would recognize what is that they have done to the Indians and make reparations
