Cannonball, Standing Rock North Dakota – The Continental Commission Abya Yala in Permanent Peacekeeping Mission at the Confluence of the Cannonball and Missouri Rivers at Standing Rock North Dakota Treaty Territories of the Oceti Sakowin Dakota-Nakota-Lakota Nations today announced the intention to move forward the accusation and denunciation of the War Crime of International Aggressionagainst the Oceti Sakowin perpetrated by the federal government of the US with direct complicity, collusion, and corruption of the high office of the President of the United States (DTrump) acting in degraded manner promoting the illegal and unethical benefit of his personal business and financial empire.
The call to the global international community by the Continental Commission Abya Yala in Permanent Peacekeeping Mission at Standing Rock Nation, Cannonball North Dakotais given after witnessing first hand on the ground the militarized police actions of February 22-23, 2017 that demolished the physical remnants of the Water Defenders Resistance Camp at Standing Rock.
The actions of International Aggression disguised as domestic police operations were executed under the legaloid presumptions of power over the territory of the Original Nations of the Missouri River Watershed, which derive their intellectual and theological foundation from the now repudiated Doctrine of Discovery of Christendom (October 12, 1492), the Doctrine of Manifest Destiny (1845), and the continental collusion among the states of the Americas to normalize the colonization and genocide of the Original Nations of the Great Turtle Island Abya Yala for over five centuries.
In this regard, the Continental Commission Abya Yala in Permanent Peacekeeping Mission at Standing Rock Nation has called to account for their historical role of complicity in the actions of February 22-23 at Standing Rock, the governments of the UN member states of France, Spain, Great Britain and the Vatican State as state actors in collusion with the framework of oppression which has captured the attention of the entire world at Standing Rock since April of 2017, when the first Water Defender Camp was established at Sacred Stone.
The presumptive legitimacy of the domestic police powers acting in violent aggression against the exercise of Self Determination of the Oceti Sakowin Water Defender Nations at the Last Child Camp, the Oceti Sakowin Camp, the Sacred Stone Camp (among others) at Standing Rock all derive their claims to jurisdiction over Oceti Sakowin Treaty Territories from the now repudiated Doctrine of Discovery of Christendom (October 12, 1492) and the Doctrine of Manifest Destiny (1845) as these legaloid concepts have come to be instituted under the international geopolitical precedents established by the rubrics of the Louisiana Purchase(US-France 1803) and preceding international compacts among the colonizing settler state systems such as the Treaty of Paris (Great Britain-France-Spain-Portugal 1763), the Treaty of Tordesilllas 1493, and the Papal Bulls of Pope Alexander VI Inter Caetera (1493) among others.
With the adoption on September 13, 2007 of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peopleswhich recognized Indigenous Peoples as “Equal to all of other peoples...” with inherent right to the full and equal exercise of the Right of Self Determination, equal to all other peoples, the time is now to elevate the international standard of recognition of the War Crime of International Aggression by the settler state systems of the Americas acting in impunity, collusion, and criminal complicity in violation of the Right of Self Determination of the Original Nations of the Great Turtle Island Abya Yala [Americas].
To this end, the Continental Commission Abya Yala in Permanent Peacekeeping Mission at Standing Rock Nation has called for a convening of legations of the still standing Ancestral Confederation of Original Nations of the Great Turtle Island Abya Yala to meet on the promontory point of the International Spiritual Monument at Standing Rock in the spring of this year to coordinate and communicate a message of World Peace and Self Determination as surviving nations of Indigenous Peoples and Water Protector Nations of Mother Earth.

Framework of Dominance
UN Preliminary Study on the Doctrine of Discovery
This preliminary study establishes that the Doctrine of Discovery has been institutionalized in law and policy, on national and international levels, and lies at the root of the violations of indigenous peoples’ human rights, both individual and collective. This has resulted in State claims to and the mass appropriation of the lands, territories and resources of indigenous peoples. Both the Doctrine of Discovery and a holistic structure that we term the Framework of Dominance have resulted in centuries of virtually unlimited resource extraction from the traditional territories of indigenous peoples. This, in turn, has resulted in the dispossession and impoverishment of indigenous peoples, and the host of problems that they face today on a daily basis.

Being that the issues in dispute involving the Dakota Access Pipeline are being contested within the ancestral homelands of the Oceti Sakuwin, referenced in the Treaty Stipulations of the 1851 and 1868 Fort Laramie Treaties with the US Government, should justice be the goal it becomes paramount and inescapable that these Treaty Issues must be first addressed in a competent legal venue of International Law.
Any domestic court of the US legal system, or any subdivision of the US government for that matter such as the EPA or the Army Corps of Engineers would simply not have purview over these international issues, as they lie completely within the realm of International Law, and therefore until the 1851 and 1868 Fort Laramie Treaties are integrated into the global framework of International Law of Treaties and Agreements on a par as a legitimate International Instrument within the United Nations system, there will never be a chance for the just resolution of disputes among the parties to the Treaty as is now being made visible to the world in the standoff at Standing Rock.
