I’m currently putting together a team to do some “wheat pasting” in San Francisco.
Do you have a prominent wall that gets a lot of traffic in your city and could use some wheat pasting? Tell us in the comments.
Article VI, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution, known as the Supremacy Clause, establishes the U.S. Constitution, U.S. Treaties, and Federal Statutes as “the supreme law of the land.” We start from the base assumption that few, if any, treaties between the United States and North American Tribes were honored. The TED talk above outlines one particular case that stands as a symbol for all tribes: The United States v. Sioux Nation of Indians. In this history we see a calculated and systematic destruction of a people. Although the story is of the Lakota and the treaties they signed at Fort Laramie in 1851 and 1868, it is the story of all indigenous people. The story of this tribe is far from over and “The Black Hills are (still) not for sale.” Over time this site will grow to become a more complete database of treaties and the treaty issues facing North America Indian tribes.
