Hill City, Lakota – November 24, 2008 – Announced today by the people of Lakota, the world’s first non-reserve, non-fractional bank accepting only gold and silver currencies for deposit.
The 2500 member warrior society has contracted to provide private security services for the Free Lakota Bank. Canupa Gluha Mani, Tetuwan Council Judicial Member commented,” Today is a great day for us, a day that we begin to exercise our rights as a sovereign people with strength and pride.” He adds, “We invite people of any creed, faith or heritage to unite in an effort to reclaim control of wealth. It is our hope that other tribal nations and American citizens recognize the importance of silver and gold as currency and decide to mirror our system of honest trade.”
Mani, also known as Duane Martin Sr, is a member of the delegation that declared Lakota independence on December 17th, 2007.
Free Lakota Bank does not require a name, photo identification or social security number to transact. The launch of the Free Lakota Bank is a success for StrikeForce Technologies, the access control experts providing depositor Out-of-Band Authentication. The challenge was met by StrikeForce, of limiting fraud without requiring controversial biometric technology.
Instead of donations or charity, Mani insists the Lakota people will prosper by “earning our wealth by creating value for those that place their faith and trust in our system.” The People of Lakota invite depositors to establish accounts, as well as invest in the Free Lakota Bank’s General Investment Fund. This is the fund it uses to develop profitable free-market enterprise inside the Lakota territory.
The Free Lakota Bank issues an American Open Currency Standard Approved currency, insuring its acceptance for trade by over 10,000 businesses across the continent.
