On May 5th and 6th 2012, in consultation with Charmaine White Face of the Sioux Nation Treaty Council, Cantetenza Itacan Canupa Gluha Mani (Duane Martin Sr.) traveled to the Northern Cheyenne and Arapaho Nations to inform them of the intention, published by official letter, of Chief Oliver Red Cloud of the Great Lakota Nation and the Red Cloud Law Firm to single-handedly renegotiate the Fort Laramie Treaty of 1868 to the exclusion of traditional elders, the grassroots oyate (people), and the other signatory Nations.

Cante Tenza Okolakiciye also known as the Strong Heart Warrior Society of the Lakota Nation is an ancient Lakota warrior society as well as a broad-based civil rights movement that works to protect, enforce and restore treaty rights, civil rights, and sovereignty of Native people and their communities across Turtle Island. In addition to activist efforts to protect the land and people, each year Cante Tenza collects and freely distributes shoes, winter coats, school supplies, food, and other support to Oglala Lakota elders, children and families.

Join Duane Martin Sr. today as he tells us about the treaty and about 85 buffalo that has been slaughtered without the permission of the owners.
