Middle of North America-- It is no surprise to us that the United States supports Israel's invasion and genocide of the Palestine nation as they have done for more than 75 years. The United States has continued to do this to us, the Sioux Nation, in the middle of North America, and began this on us more than 150 years ago. Despite the fact that we have a legal and binding International Treaty for peace with the United States, the world community has failed to listen to our pleas for the full enforcement of the Treaty, the 1868 Fort Laramie Treaty. Consequently we are only a minuscule portion of the Nation we once were. Millions of our people are gone.
Therefore, we are in solidarity with our brothers and sisters of the Palestine nation. We pray for the good health and protection of Palestine. We also pray that Israel and the United States will stop their genocidal actions for the good of their own people. The United States and Israel are being given an opportunity to do what is right and humane. Will they take it or will the Palestine nation suffer for more years, the same as we and many other Indigenous nations have suffered? The circle falls on everyone. If one human being is oppressed we all are oppressed.
