Black Hills Sioux Nation Treaty Council Resolution Condemning the Illegal
Imprisonment of Leonard Peltier and Demanding His Immediate Release
January 29, 2011 – Prairie Winds Casino, Pine Ridge Reservation
WHEREAS, the Black Hills Sioux Nation Treaty Nation Council assembled in
quorum along with representatives of the Lakota, Nakota and Dakota Nations
present from January 27‐29 2011 at the Prairie Winds Casino on the Pine Ridge Reservation, and
WHEREAS, the United States has violated Article I and Article II of the Fort
Laramie Treaty of 1868, by failing to remove and, or, punish “bad men” who commit wrongs against the Lakota people and by failing to remove non‐tribal members illegally residing in the treaty territory, and
WHEREAS, Leonard Peltier was one of a number of warriors who came to the
defense of the Oyate and the traditional government after repeated acts of violence by agents of the United States government and others subject to U.S. government jurisdiction, and
WHEREAS, Leonard Peltier’s conviction is built upon fraudulent affidavits
coerced by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and bolstered by falsified physical evidence from the F.B.I. lab, and
WHEREAS, Leonard Peltier has been illegally held as a political prisoner by
the United States government since 1976,
NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the Black Hills Sioux Nation Treaty Council declares that the continued imprisonment of Leonard Peltier by the United States government is illegal, immoral and unjust, and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Black Hills Sioux Nation Treaty Council
demands the immediate release of Leonard Peltier.
I, the undersigned Secretary of the Black Hills Sioux Nation Treaty Council, do
hereby certify that the above resolution has been approved by consensus of all
delegations of the Black Hills Sioux Nation Treaty Council, effective January 29, 2011.

We must stand up for the rights of Leonard Peltier and demand that Leonard Peltier be freed. We as Americans kick and scream for political prisoners held in foreign countries be freed while we have political prisoners like Leonard Peltier here in the United States.

Please Send The This To Everyone You Know

We need to call the whitehouse 202 456 1111 and demand his release. A complete full and unconditional pardon. Leonard Peltier must be allowed to go free. How can we as American citizens protest and demand the freedom of political prisoners around the world when our Federal Government has had Leonard Peltier imprisoned for 35 years for a crime he did not commit.

Or you can write to President Obama at.

President Obama

Please note that Kat (@ 6:36 pm comment) has a one paragraph suggestion for a letter to President Obama. I believe the greeting should be Dear President Obama: OR Dear Mr. President: I would be tempted to include the quotes written by Leonard Peltier. They are so powerful If President Obama hasn't heard them yet. He should. I plan to write to him. This man has paid long enough, I believe, whether guilty or not guilty. The incident seems like self-defense to me... for generations.

I have signed many petitions at powwows in the Midwest since the middle 90's for the release of Leonard Peltier.

It has been reported that he was denied the proper medical treatment he needed/needs. This is illegal as all inmates being wards of the state are to be given the medical care they require. I do not know why they refused this for Leonard Peltier unless it is another way to repress the indigenous populations in this country.

Carol D (346)
Sunday January 30, 2011, 1:13 pm
So that there is absolutely no confusion about what Peltier said within a day of his latest (June 12, 2000) parole review hearing, and for the benefit of concerned readers and researchers, and particularly the LPDC and Peltier supporters:

"...but WE don't know who HE is."

Peltier has evidently decided that the alibi he offered for the world to believe, is forgotten. At this point, how can any reasonable person who has made any effort to explore all sides of this very important issue believe Peltier's claims of innocence? Peltier has lied to anyone who would listen, especially his supporters, and now wants to pretend as if he never offered this alibi in the first place: If Mr. X doesn't exist, then, presumably, it was never mentioned repeatedly (or he wasn't actually interviewed) in the book, "In The Spirit Of Crazy Horse," or "Incident at Oglala," that Mr. X was the real killer. Everyone must have been asleep when he made those statements. Does anyone remember Robert Robideau providing such exacting details and even pointing to the pasture where Mr. X was last seen killing the agents? Didn't Peltier tell us that he knew who Mr. X was but that because of his honor he would not testify against this person? "It would be wrong," "I won't do it," he said.

If Peltier will lie so easily to his own people, to his loyal supporters, to his high-profile admirers, why would anyone believe that he is innocent of killing Agents Jack Coler and Ron Williams?

Mr. X is Peltier's second lie. His first relates to the crime he committed on June 26, 1975: Murder!



Robert Robideau "Incident at Oglala" (1991)
"It was only a couple of years ago that I had an opportunity to talk with the individual, that was the individual that killed these two agents. He told me that he was coming to the Jumping Bull home to deliver explosives that WE had asked him to bring here." Robideau points to the field in the distance, and in great detail describes last seeing Mr. X shoot the agents and drive off in the red pickup." That day I noticed a red pickup coming down from that white house up there, and when it got on the other side of these cars, it stopped, an individual got out, of course I knew who he was. Robideau continues with the details of what he saw and what Mr. X told him. "…and fired and killed both of them. Shortly after that the individual got back into the driver's side of the pickup, and the pickup left, and made its way up along this tree line up here and past the green house, and I never saw the red pickup again."

(Postscript to Robideau: In a statement dated February 13, 2004 Robideau also conveniently ignores the Mr. X lie scenario:

"As far as I have ever been concerned the killing of the agents was justified...They were shot in the head at close range, but they were killed honorable (sic)...I have no remorse for the actions we took against our enemies in the heat of this defensive action." (Emphasis added)

The "we" Robideau refers to is not the lie of Mr. X, or the collective "we," but clearly himself, Butler and Peltier.)

(Further postscript to Robideau: In an email to the NPPA dated June 2, 2004, Robideau stated the following in which he refers to the NPPA 4th Anniversary statement,

I have just read your convoluted statement that Paul was so good to publish for you.

Since it is primarily directed at me I will express myself face to face with the dog barking at his own shadow.

I have never denied shooting at the two agents, I have said that my bullet found it mark on one of the agents early in the fight, a killing wound according to the pathologist's report.

If it pleases you I am "Mr. X" (which is no lie) and I did kill them with honor befitting a warrior, but they died like worms…

The rest of you letter is not worth comment.

your turn,
Robert Robideau

Peltier "Incident at Oglala" (1991)
"This story is true. But I can't and will not say anything about it. For me to testify against anybody or even mention, try to get somebody else in trouble is wrong. And I won't do it." (To identify Mr. X.)

Peltier (July, 19, 1991, Leavenworth, Darrin Wood interview)
"I can't say anything about that Darrin, I haven't said anything about it for almost sixteen years."

"No, because I know his intentions are to give credibility to my claims of innocence..."

"For me it's something very heroic that he's done. He's putting himself at risk, seriously at risk. I will say this: that this brother is a very strong brother. He is not a cold-blooded murderer. He is not a bad person, he's very kind, generous and sincere."

"...Because all the media have asked me about this, and it's the same answer, I can't say anything about it. I appreciate what he's done."


Dino Butler (1995, E.K. Caldwell, News from Indian Country interview)
"It was brought up about creating this lie about Mr. X. being there and killing those men...To create this lie to show that someone else pulled the trigger...So it was decided that nobody would use this Mr. X theory-that it would be shelved." "That is all totally false. Totally untrue. That never happened."

"It is totally false that I had knowledge of who that person was and knew that person was going to come into our camp that day to deliver dynamite." "He (Matthiessen) never made an effort to contact me and ask me if this was true."

Peltier (June 24, 1995, Matthew Schofield, The Kansas City Star Interview)
"I know I said I killed those guys once," Peltier, 50, said during a recent interview at the U.S. Penitentiary in Leavenworth.


Peltier (May 30, 1999, Peter Worthington, Toronto Sun interview)
"I don't know for a fact who did the shooting, but I think I know," "But I can't say anything. Who'd believe me? Besides, we have a tradition that you don't turn against your own. This wasn't a domestic dispute in 1975, it was a war. A soldier who's captured and turns against his own is ostracized. I want out of prison bad...but I can't point a finger at some else."

Peltier (September 10, 1999, CNN interview)
"I didn't kill those agents. I didn't see who killed those agents. And if I did know, I'm not telling. But I don't know. That's the point."

Do you know who killed those agents? "No."


LPDC (letter dated May 23, 2000)
"Mr. X has long been a controversial topic, by both supporters of Leonard Peltier and those who oppose his release."


Peltier (June 12, 2000, Pacifica Radio, Democracy Now interview)
"Mr. X is, could be anybody. I mean there's no doubt that somebody killed these agents, but WE don't know who he is."

Peltier (June 25, 2000, Lee Williams, Argus Leader News interview)
"I know I've said in the past who he is. I said it out of ANGER. I don't know who it is, either Mr. X, Y or Z."


Peltier (Prison Writings, St. Martin's Press, 1999)
At no point in Peltier's autobiography does he mention either Mr. X or the red pickup.

A&E, American Justice; Murder On A Reservation, October 17, 2000
"I don't know who killed them. I mean, I can't say anything about that. I just, I just don't know who did it. I don't wanna know."

A&E, American Justice; Murder On A Reservation, October 17, 2000
(Postscript, by narrator, Bill Kurtis)
"It's worth noting that in all the testimony from both reservation murder trials, no other Indians are identified as taking part in that fateful gun fight except from the men and teenagers from the AIM camp. Who else might have executed those agents? If somebody knows, they're not saying."

I do not hold out much hope for Mr. Peltier. I know that in my country, Canada, the police shot and killed Dudley George for mooning them. The rcmp are a law unto themselves with little or no oversight. The police routinely freeze to death young native men on the prairies, young native women disappear off the streets by the score butchered on a pig farm and no heads roll at police headquarters. But, One policeman gets killed and it's three day coverage, national funeral and "we got to get tough on crime."

How can any Americans criticize other nations for holding political prisoners when our own hands are not clean? The case against Leonard Peltier was built on falsification of evidence and intimidation of witnesses, and the evidence of that is a matter of public record.
The reality is that in the 1970s the FBI waged an undeclared war against the people of Pine Ridge Reservation. The crass motives behind that are clear. Every day that Peltier is kept in prison is another blot on the conscience of a great nation. Set him free!

Holding an innocent man is a crime! FREE Leonard Peltier NOW or you will account to God for ALL your wrong/evil doing! Innocent or guilty this man after serving behind bars 35 years has more then paid for a crime that he may or may not of been responsible for & yet you are still holding him while he is a sick man! Does he pay with his life before you come to your senses! God will punish & punish more severely then what Leonard had to endure all these years. Justice will be served as sure as there will be a HELL for you who failed! Mailing letter to President Obama tomorrow! Thanks Kat.

Thanks Kat. The only reason Leonard Peltier was sentenced, jailed and continues to be, is the Federal Government's egos and fear of being known for the weak they are and Fear of someone (Leonard Peltier and others) powerful enough to cause them loss of control, egos, and power. In many ways, our government is and has been No better than those leaders being deposed now and in human history. Thanks also, for the simple and straightforward letter sample Kat.

your philosophy is
"We reap what we sow..if we sow love we reap love,
if we sow hatred we reap hatred."

But you're sowing irrational judgement here... you Will reap the same.
Is that what you want?

If you truly believe cause & effect as reality,
how can you judge?

Contemplate the depth of Compassion,
actually place yourself in the other persons skin,
feel it if you dare..
you can because you're almost the same age.
Health issues at this age? More than likely.
Deny yourself the proper care.
Serve 36 long years of your life behind bars....
guilty or innocent, the punishment has been paid,
hasn't it?

Endeavor to enjoy the bliss of Love & Compassion for ALL
not only for your chosen few.
Open your heart

This just in from one of my native tribal members:

Leonard is in dire need of medical attention, so here is where you can write a handwritten letter {more effective} to see that he is in fact transferred so he may seek the medical attention that he so desperately needs.

Please write here, and this is a copy of what to write:

At this time, Mr. Peltier's most pressing need is proper medical care. His only hope of
being seen by qualified physicians and receiving care that complies with standard medical
protocols is to be immediately transferred to another facility. For background
information on this current crisis, read our November 2010 press release at

You can help. Please print this letter (PDF format): Sign the letter; write your
name and mailing address; and mail or fax your letter today.

Mail to: Federal Bureau of Prisons
Address: 320 1st Street, NW, Washington, DC 20534

Sample Text

Often a handwritten heartfelt letter is quite effective. Remember to always employ a
respectful tone and keep your comments brief and to the point. If you wish, you may adapt
the following text.


Harley G. Lappin, Director
U.S. Bureau of Prisons
320 First Street, NW
Washington, DC 20534

Dear Mr. Lappin:

It has come to my attention that Leonard Peltier #89637-132, an inmate at the U.S.
Penitentiary in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, is in dire need of medical attention.

I believe that Mr. Peltier's medical needs are urgent. He needs to be seen by proper
medical staff. Therefore, I respectfully request that Leonard Peltier be transferred to
FCI-Oxford in Wisconsin or FMC-Rochester in Minnesota. Either of these facilities can
adequately accommodate Mr. Peltier's medical needs.

Thank you in advance for transferring Leonard Peltier and immediately addressing his
medical needs!




Thank you for all you do on Mr. Peltier's behalf.

Mail to: Federal Bureau of Prisons
Address: 320 1st Street, NW, Washington, DC 20534
Fax: (202) 514-6620

Thank you all for caring and loving another human being on this planet.

Blessings to all ~
