Liberty, Video

Lavoy Finicum supported Native American tribal sovereignty before his death

Is a multi-racial movement for liberty and local sovereignty scary enough to the FBI that they will shoot a man over it?

From Lingit Latseen

In a video released the evening of his death, LaVoy Finicum, the man who was shot and killed on Tuesday in Harney County, addresses some concerns voiced by Natives regarding the occupation. In the video he voices his support for the establishment of independent, sovereign tribal nations. Finicum was a part of the armed occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.

“It is time to throw off the BIA, and become a completely sovereign independent nation without the overseer-ship of the BIA,” Finicum says. “It is time for them to stand up and throw off the federal government out of their nations.”
