Lakota leaders involved with treaty councils, treaty laws and their interpretations and implementations discuss how the sacred lands of the Black Hills have been raped by Big Oil & Gas and mining companies. Some Lakota activists who have been long associated with fighting against pipeline installation, mining, fracking, and drilling for natural resources, rich and plentiful in the Black Hills, also chime in here on this article from 'Daily Kos'.
