December 21, 2009  marks the second anniversary of the announcement that  the Lakotah Nation was unilaterally withdrawing from treaties they signed with the federal government of the United States.

Garry Rowland from Wounded Knee was one of the delegates that made the trip to Washington DC. He said, at the time quote "Today is a historic day and our forefathers speak through us. Our Forefathers made the treaties in good faith with the sacred Canupa and with the knowledge of the Great Spirit. They never honored the treaties, that's the reason we are here today."

Tonight on Circle A Radio we learn more about the secession, and about what has happened in the two years since secession. We will hear from Canupa  Gluha Mani, and Russel Means.  Stay Tuned.
