“The Dakota/Lakota/Nakota Human Rights Advocacy Coalition is chartered on the Rosebud Sioux Indian Reservation in south-central South Dakota. Our members are volunteer American Indian activists and activists for American Indian issues involved in advocating for integrated human, civil, legal, and indigenous rights, and social justice for traditional Dakota/Lakota/Nakota People. In addition to advocating in these matters, DLN is dedicated to providing solutions to Indian families who face hardship within reservation and border communities.”
“This website is dedicated to (a) DLN Human Rights Advocacy (b) the dissemination of DLN news to DLN peoples and others, and (c) to educating and informing non-indigenous individuals on the facts concerning indigenous peoples in general, and the DLN in specific, as regards a genocidal agenda which has exterminated millions and continues to threaten extermination both culturally and physically.
