"Upon suffering beyond suffering: the Red Nation shall rise again and it shall be a blessing for a sick world. A world filled with broken promises, selfishness and separations. A world longing for light again. I see a time of Seven Generations when all the colors of mankind will gather under the Sacred Tree of Life and the whole Earth will become one circle again. In that day, there will be those among the Lakota who will carry knowledge and understanding of unity among all living things and the young white ones will come to those of my people and ask for this wisdom. I salute the light within your eyes where the whole Universe dwells. For when you are at that center within you and I am that place within me, we shall be one." - Chief Crazy Horse

"Our Traditional spiritual ways have great power, and it is time we worked with that."

Mission Statement

Following the footsteps of my Great Grandfather, Chief John Grass, as Chief for the L.D.N. Nation and dynastic Grand Chief of the General Council, I have posted this web site for educational purposes as a resource of strength and pride for our people, to help broaden understanding of our nation, and to give insight into the work being prayerfully done to see that the treaties now still in force are finally honored, as the remaining peace loving traditional spiritual ways of governance of our Oyate continue to work to preserve our broad land base, our unique and beautiful languages, traditional, cultural, and spiritual ways of life for our people now and to benefit all nations' future generations. The Lakota have no intention of depriving anyone of their equity or just title. In simpler terms, the Lakota have a proprietary right as principal, and the U.S. as agent has made huge profits and incurred great losses using the lands, resources, and peoples of the Lakota region. The losses are now so great that the principal must institute special measures to correct the problem because the principal is the one upon whom such a duty is incumbent. Thus the Lakota Chiefs have several projects in mind to ... that should also benefit the world at large, one being, the creation of this website... Chief Richard Grass
(whose work continues through his sister, webmaster, and those remaining few elders who have workerd with and witnessed the 1991 ceremony at Bear Buttle re-establishing this nation for the 7th Generation.


1. To be recognized as a viable Nation (not a corporation or state) continuing to work internationally to implement successful ways to preserve our broad land base, unique and beautiful languages, traditional, cultural, and spiritual ways of life for our people now and to benefit all nations' future generations.

2. To work with what talents and funds that come to keep this web site online and to find some way to see that the truth of our nation and ways may be finally told and broadly published; the the manuscript "John Grass, American Indian Patriot" written by Angela A. Green Boleyn, in the Moon of the Tipsin Buds, 1961, and later gifted by her family heirs at her request to the remaining Grass family dynasty may finally be published and made available to all peoples.. This book has awaited a good time and way to be published in it's entirety, to tell the world of the true Spiritual Traditonal  Lakota-Dakota-Nakota story and our ways of life, as well as to finally reveal many unknown facts about the Battle of the Little Bighorn, our true peaceful and cooperative relationships with many tribes, and document our nations' origins and the dynastic line of Traditional Chiefs that have been preserved down to this day.

3. To maintain, grow and support this web site and the administrative costs of the L.D.N. Nation, so that workable ways may be found and implemented for our nation to thrive again, to strike a balance of living within our traditional values in these modern times so that we may become a strong, dynamic, self sufficient and self sustainable soveriegn nation living in respect of Mitakuye Oyasin (all our relations - we are all related) and thus begin again to provide for the many urgent needs of ALL our people both on and off the reservations.

4. To publish this informational website worldwide as a vehicle to communicate to all interested parties the facts about the Treaties made between this nation and others, and present additional relevant documentation, so as to educate and work through all available legal and international means to see that the provisions and implications of these treaties are finally and fully understood and honored by all parties.

Click here to Listen to a 4-28-10 online interview with Chief Richard Deo Grass, descendant to Chief John Grass (Mato Watapke - Charging Bear - Oglala, Lakota, Sihasapa) wherein he explains how he was eventually located by the Elders and informed of his lineage and duties to re-establish this nation.

"Sioux"/Lakota/Oceti Sakowin/Seven Council Fires/Buffalo Nation/LDN

In reference to the word “Sioux “ in these documents, and throughout this web site, we are
The Lakota Dakota Nakota Traditional and Spiritual Government,
a Sovereign Nation International

which form a free spirited, diverse and free ranging
sovereign government . Its governmental expression and citizenry may also be understood to be and is often referenced by it’s shortened form, i.e.
The LDN Nation, sometimes also referred to as The Lakota or The Lakota Nation (although in fact we encompass many more bands and tribes than the "Lakota Nation" implies). In addition to the Lakota, Dakota, and Nakota tribes (whose many citizens now reside throughout the "United" States, Canada and abroad), in our way of kinship relationship, we include what remains today specifically
all of the descendants, peoples and tribes of those nations who signed with us the
Treaties of 1851 - 1868

This is a unique, traditional and spiritual government that walks the Red Road with our sacred cannupa before us (Peace Pipe), which re-established itself in the 1980s and in a solemn assembly along with an authentic traditional spiritual ceremony at Bear Butte July 1991 Chief Richard Deo Grass - Charging Bear - was officially installed and appointed as the heir and modern day successor to the John Grass dynasty of Chiefs (John Grass – Charging Bear - family of Chiefs were present at and signed both of the Treaties referred to throughout this web site, John Grass was a major strategist at the Battle of the Little Big Horn and went to Washington on numerous occasions in noble attempts to negotiate with U.S. officials on behalf of the LDN Nations' peoples).

This web site has been established in order to give a peaceful place and respectful forum with which to educate and unite our people as intended by our ancestors who prayerfully signed the treaties, now SEVEN GENERATIONS later; to document these facts and make them public throughout the world and to re-establish our natural kinship relationship upon our lands to bless all our relations. Mitakuye Oyasin. Through this means we hope to bring attention to and publish the truth of our history, in part by putting into print manuscripts about the life and times of Chief John Grass passed down to our family for publication in these times.

This government was and has always been integrally involved in still in holding to the Treaties of 1851 – 1868 and is totally committed to seeing them honored fully by both parties. Although we welcome and embrace any who walk in a sacred manner in traditional spiritual ways of our ancestors (regardless of their race or affiliations in the dominant culture), this LDN Government operates and is separate and distinct from any other forms of “government” ,movements, self publicized “holy leaders”, corporations, 501c "non-Profit" establishments or U.S. Government sponsored organizations and social or tribal government or militant backed groups or corporate sponsored programs expressed upon “Sioux” lands and territories per the findings, statements and documents on this official web site and hereby presented.

Many of the entire original legal documents on this web site remain on file not only at the U.S. Government and United Nations offices to where they were sent at that time. The entire Richard Deo Grass collection has been gifted in 2014 by surviving sister to Chief Grass to the University of South Dakota to be archived and made availbalbe to future generations.  Copes also reside at the offices of the Lakota Dakota Nakota Nation in the Center of the Nation. We ask that you use this information to educate all peoples of our position and situation and to help carry our cause to peaceful resolution on the world stage so that our traditional spiritual nation may thrive and live once again on our sacred lands in the natural way promised us. Also we ask that you please respect our Copyright statement. Webmaster


Following is an excerpt from the writings of Spiritual Traditional Chiefs signed by Reginald Bird Horse, Sr., [then acting] Chief Executive Officer of the Lakota Dakota Nakota National Government, Joseph A. Walker, who was at the time Vice-Chief Executive Officer, Lakota Dakota Nakota National Government, Chief Richard Grass
1990's letter to M.C. Van Walt Van Praag - General Secretary of U.N.P.O. International
Patricia Van Nippen Tot Sevenaer - Head of Legal Department U.N.P.O. International

We have been discussing all of these laws, mainly U.S.A. laws, they derive from man-made laws. Here in the U.S.A. elected senators and congressmen make and interpret these laws according to their constitution, and of course a lawyer to refine it, but their best interest is themselves. All these laws must be backed up by their constitution and a standing army. As for International Law, it too has been defined refined and exploited towards these bigger government interests. Even laws like the Charter of the United Nations Resolution, are backed up by a multi-national force of the standing army, so we believe they are both a fraud. All they really are, are regulated acts of piracy.

Same way that multi-national corporations are set on trying to enforce this federal law on us indigenous peoples in this Western Hemisphere. Or the World community like the "World Order" , another fraud.

We as Lakota Nation live by the spiritual laws, and by natural laws, which are mainly laws of respect for everything that lives, and surrounds you. No fraud about that.

We have come to a decision, we have to start paticipating and we mean everybody, to change some of these unnatural laws, anyway we came to help protect true human rights, and the indigenous property and land titles, to the full extent.  This should happen as soon as possible, so we will start sending the names of potential selected lawyers, of course these lawyers want pay, and we are pennyless at the present time.  However, they and we know our ccause is worthwhile, the indigenous peoples.

Thank you.


Chief, Richard Grass , Lakota, Dakota, Nakota nation


This website has now been created from dreams as a give away and a gathering place for the documentation of the general philosophies, ideals, history, and the ongoing organization and work by spiritual traditional Chiefs and the few remaining traditional spiritual Elders of a free spirited people re-established and re-awakened as a sovereign nation international at Bear Butte on July 14, 1991.

Since more and more of our natural freedoms to care for the lands, peoples, and resources our ancestors bestowed upon us in good relationship have, over the last 200 years, been assimilated, polluted, pillaged, made political, or covered over in concrete, carpet, garbage and red tape, corrupted within the methodical, mindless and heartless structure and oftentimes genocidal and dangerous attempts of the dominating culture to "control" us and the many natural nations within the borders of the lands left us through treaties our forefathers signed in good faith, we recognize that in the name of "progress" by the deliberate design and intent of the dominating culture, all done in the name of "growth at any cost" (i.e.manifest destiny), it has proved very difficult and seemingly impossible, for our people, and all our relatives left in the natural world, to remain healthy, free and in balance until now.

But as the buffalo faces into the storm, we still live today, and walking forward in a sacred manner, we continue to look for a good way to find balance. It is time for us to find a solution, take personal responsibility to be the solution, and solve the many problems that face our nation (not be the problem). As far as the Wasichus are concerned, we have always been the problem - and in many ways through their education of us, we have "listened" to their decrees for us, and fallen into deeper despair, fear and a sense of total resignation and powerlessness.

Yet, true to the prophecies and visions of our ancestors, as if through a miracle, our women have continued to teach our traditions, the ways of our ancestors, our languages, our history and spiritual and cultural heritage which operated for centuries as a matriarchal society. Much of which is still untold now finds a crack in the surrounding concrete and in this small way still remains with hope, stands strong now only as each individual associated with us is awakened, understands and is lifted up, honored, and effectively practices the great power for good and restitution that now remains in our nation and within the power of our hands and hearts, so that we may continue towards the needed flowering and healing of our nation with responsible thought and united, appropriate, and harmonious action. "If you are not a part of the solution, you are part of the problem." Chief Richard Grass

Our prayer continues that we may yet find workable effective ways to create a viable, safe and abundantly nurturing environment to grow each individual within our nation and beyond, encourage and educate each to take full responsibility in respectfully expressing their own unique and sacred life way within the circle, and to thus honor the whole and gather back the sacred tools and resources still available to us, to mend, heal, and thrive in peaceful wholeness and bring back to life the peaceful dignified ways of Saons, the ancestors, and rebirth in spirit the Seven Council Fires - Oceti Sakowin.

This web site is a long held dream that now awakens through the crystal stones (used in every computer around the globe) to communicate to two-leggeds world wide for this purpose so that we may now join our hands and hearts towards a better and more whole expression of our sacred circle and honor life now and bring it forward to bloom in good ways for future generations of all our diverse relatives both living and all but "extinct" upon unci maka.

We are a free people in heart if we open our hearts to live in love and gratitude and not fear and bitterness...and as such, as free human beings we can re-visit our traditional and spiritual ways and walk in a sacred manner, salvaging and repairing, and in some cases constructing and re-inventing what we can of a culture and way of life that has been broken, but not beyond hope. With deep appreciation and respect, we individually can move towards prayerfully exploring peaceful healing life ways to mend the sacred hoop and exercise our freedoms as a life honoring people/nation to again walk in beauty in balance, harmony, abundance and peace so that the people may live!

"All the REAL INDIANS Died off" and 20 other myths about Native Americans

 by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz Author of an Indigenous Peoples History of the United States and Dina Gilio-Whitaker


"A Society that has no locks can tolerate no thief; without paper or other easy record of man's word it can tolerate no liar, and no troublemaker if there is no jail, no prison.  Such a society must orient its young very early.  If, in addition, there is no established creed, no organized priesthood, no one to say what must be believed, or to offer a refuge, then the members of that society must be given a strong sense of their inalienability from all things of the earth and the sky and all that lies between.  This sense must not be that of the infant, to whom all things are joined, his to command, but that of the adult, upon whose conduct all things are dependent.  When men are not brave the rains fail for all, and when the women lose their virtue the buffalo do not return."
Marie Sandoz  "These Were the Sioux"

 “These men, Red Cloud, Gall, Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse, had they been permitted to grow and expand, would have held up our Dakotah Nation to the admiration of the world, I believe.  But they are all dead now.

It is my opinion that, if this nation had been left alone, had been permitted to work out their own salvation as other young nations have done before and since, when they first came into touch with the effects of civilization, they would have produced some fine specimens of mental manhood.

They would have become capable of seeing their destiny and the responsibility of government and advancement along the lines of civilized customs, and seeing it, they would have developed the power of thought and mentality which would have carried this nation to an apex of respect and admiration among the great nations and peoples of the world.

I am sure of this.

I am sorry we were not permitted to do this.

We wanted to.” Quote from John Grass (Mato Watapke to his Adopted son AB Welch

the long held truths of our history per our previously published
Mission Statement and Goals. We wish to give birth to and re-establish understanding of the spiritual and traditional LDN Nation and bring balance to what remains of our authentic spiritually based people by gifting the tools and teachings both past and present by which to mend the sacred hoop.  Through this educational site it is our hope that by embracing, walking in and thus reclaiming respectful kinship relationship as our Mothers and Grandmothers have taught us, and as was prophesied long ago, ultimately we may bless all our relations with these teachings to bring understanding and life honoring ways of our ancestors back into practice in daily lives in

Much of the information on this site has come from the dream time and as a result of slow thinking and much prayer (right brain understanding) and passionate work, it has been carefully guarded and passed down through many generations of Grass descendants, held for release at an appropriate time and way with the intent to best serve, bless, encourage and nurture the unique gifts and perspectives of each sacred human being who chooses to walk in a sacred manner among a free traditional spiritual people.  To flower and bear fruit towards personal respect and responsibility we publish this site with prayerful, spirit directed intent so that our nation may Support, Create, Grow and Live in ways that heal a heart, a nation, a world now and for future generations.  In the traditional spiritual way this information is put forth in the English language (which is a different thought process than the languages of our traditional ways and culture) as true to the best of our knowledge and ability to bring it forward in language at this time.  No guarantee, warranty, nor argument is hereby issued nor will be put forth as to it's political or social appropriateness, popularity, understanding or acceptance by those who have been deeply affected and influenced by the prejudices and programming of the dominating cultures' philosophies, sciences, "life" styles, religious teachings, accepted historical viewpoints, creeds, records or perspectives, nor its' left brain legalistic views as to it's accuracy.
