Tomorrow, Wednesday March 11, members of the Yankton Sioux Tribe will be attending a hearing at the Federal Court House in St. Paul regarding Tribal Jurisdiction.

Tomorrow, Wednesday March 11, members of the Yankton Sioux Tribe will be attending a hearing at the Federal Court House in St. Paul regarding Tribal Jurisdiction.  They are asking for your support.  They are asking anyone that is able to attend the hearing so that they can show strength in numbers.  (If anyone would like to bring a sign that would be great, but probably won’t be allowed to bring it into the courtroom)

The attorney will be presenting the following to the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals re: The Yankton Sioux Tribe V. Scott Podrahsky and Southern Waste Management:

1.) Sovereignty must be protected and preserved for future generations

2.) Treaties are nation to nation agreements and need to be regarded as such

3.) The 1858 Treaty and the 1892 Agreements were coerced upon the Yankton People by use of starvation tactics and confinement

4.) Any contract or action achieved by coercion makes such action null and void

5.) Article VI of the US Constitution is incorporated by reference thereto **

**(US Constitution Article 6 states “…This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.”)

Tribal members are arriving in the cities today.

The Federal Court house is located at 316 North Robert Street in Downtown St. Paul.  The hearing begins at 9:00 am in Courtroom 5-A and will not last long.  The only speaker allowed is the Tribe’s attorney.
