‘No Treaty Leg To Stand On’

“There has been a lot of talk of late about treaties from the protesters trying to block the ‘Dakota Access Pipeline’, with the assertion that the land the pipeline is being built on is land the Sioux people never ceded to the federal government…

“…the ‘Fort Laramie Treaty of 1868’ seems to say that the tribe must accept the pipeline…

“…the path forward for the pipeline would be clear under a clear reading of the text of the treaty. The tribe must accept “works of utility”, as long as they’re paid a sort of easement {See below…}.

“Which definitely would have happened if the ‘Dakota Access Pipeline’ crossed Standing Rock tribal land. After all, the Dakota Access folks paid an easement to the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation, where the pipeline does cross tribal lands…”

The Tribal Grand Council meeting over the Fort Laramie Treaty

“The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe…staunchly asserts these treaty rights to remain steadfast and just as applicable today as on the day they were made.”
{From the tribe’s website: http://standingrock.org/history/ }

‘Fort Laramie Treaty of 1868’
“ARTICLE 11. In consideration of the advantages and benefits conferred by this treaty, and the many pledges of friendship by the United States, the tribes who are parties to this agreement hereby stipulate that they will relinquish all right to occupy permanently the territory outside their reservation as herein defined…

“1st. That they will withdraw all opposition to the construction of the railroads now being built on the plains.

“2d. That they will permit the peaceful construction of any railroad not passing over their reservation as herein defined.

“3d. That they will not attack any persons at home, or travelling, nor molest or disturb any wagon-trains, coaches, mules, or cattle belonging to the people of the United States, or to persons friendly therewith…

“6th. They withdraw all pretence of opposition to the construction of the railroad now being built along the Platte River and westward to the Pacific Ocean, and they will not in future object to the construction of railroads, wagon-roads, mail-stations, or other works of utility or necessity, which may be ordered or permitted by the laws of the United States. But should such roads or other works be constructed on the lands of their reservation, the Government will pay the tribe whatever amount of damage may be assessed by three disinterested commissioners to be appointed by the President for that purpose, one of said commissioners to be a chief or head-man of the tribe…”
