Little Shell Pembina Band .. one sovereign citizen group.

Law enforcement officers and public officials around the country are encountering members of a new and active anti-government extremist group that calls itself the "Little Shell Pembina Band of North America." Members of the group claim that they belong to a "sovereign" Native American tribe and therefore are not subject to laws and regulations; in reality, the "Little Shell Pembina Band" is part of the anti-government "sovereign citizen" movement. .. http://www.adl.org/learn/ext_us/SCM.asp?LEARN_Cat=Extremism&LEARN_SubCat=Extremism_in_America&xpicked=4&item=sov .. Its members' activities range from driving with bogus license plates to perpetrating insurance fraud schemes to tax evasion.

Quick Profile

Founder: Ronald Delorme
Based: Primarily in North Dakota and Washington, but members can be found across the nation.
Splinter Group: The group has split into two competing factions, each using the same name.
Media: Internet, videos, seminars, fax solicitations Approach: Claims to be a
sovereign Native American tribe and not subject to the laws of the United States.
Ideology: Anti-government and sovereign citizen; members may also belong
to a wide variety of sovereign citizen, militia, or white supremacist groups.


The origins of the Little Shell Band (named after a Chief Little Shell, who died in 1901) have a kernel of truth. The Little Shell Band did, in fact, once exist as a branch of the Chippewa on the northern Great Plains in the 19th century. Most were pushed westward out of Minnesota and North Dakota to Montana. Today there is a Little Shell Band of Montana, a legitimate although federally unrecognized Native American tribe. It has no connections to extremism or to the Little Shell Pembina Band of North America. (Pembina refers to the area around the Pembina River in northeastern North Dakota).

In the 20th century, a variety of Chippewa factions launched lawsuits for federal recognition and funds. In these competing suits, one group identified itself as the "Little Shell of North Dakota" but never achieved recognition.

In 2001, a North Dakota resident named Ronald Karyance Delorme, claiming to be the hereditary chief of the "Little Shell Band of Indians of North America," filed a federal lawsuit that sought recognition as well as funds from appropriations statutes pertaining to Chippewa land claims. According to the legal argument prepared by Delorme's attorney, the funds (including interest) amounted to more than a hundred million dollars.

Describing himself as the great-grandson of Auguhk Qway, one of Chief Little Shell's Grand Council members, Delorme had fought with other Chippewa groups over these claims for years (despite a 1993 Native American newspaper report that his Little Shell Band consisted primarily of his family). Ultimately, the courts saw little merit in Delorme's arguments and refused to acknowledge a connection between his group and the Chippewas who had previously fought for recognition.

At some point during these unsuccessful legal battles, Delorme transformed the Little Shell Band into a sovereign citizen group. Its ideology was not new to the region: sovereign citizens had been active in North Dakota, where Delorme and his extended family lived, dating back to the 1980s, when Posse Comitatus leader Gordon Kahl ambushed and killed two federal marshals in Medina in 1983.

By 2004 the Little Shell Band claimed to be a "completely sovereign tribe" that held "allodial title" to over 53 million acres of land (for some reason, this figure was later increased to 62 million). Saying it no longer sought federal recognition, the group declared its own executive, legislative and judicial powers, bestowing on itself the right to establish a legal bar and "tribal lawyers" as well as a "sovereign tribal financial and banking institution."

"Quite simply", according to, JJ Crabb, (see below) they believe they are above the law. Many believe they are the law.

The cult denies the USA much. Not only by tax evasion, through many different fraudulent schemes, and thousands
of wasted court hours, but also in their total disrespect of the law and of government institutions of the USA.

Shades of treason lurk. Apparently many in their CULT of sovereign citizens claim membership to the Little Shell Pembina Band.


'60 Minutes' exposes the 'sovereign citizens' as the nation's most serious domestic-terrorism threat

[ embedded video .. in it, JJ McNabb, says, "you can't really believe in what they peddle unless you have turned
off the common sense button .." .. funny isn't it, that's what common sense people here see in their words, too. ]

[H/t Heather]

60 Minutes' Byron Pitt had a superb segment last night on the sovereign citizens movement, springboarding from the tragic case of Jerry and Joe Kane, two sovereign citizens who mowed down a couple of West Memphis, Arkansas, police officers before themselves being killed.

It was actually a well assembled and insightful piece of reporting, including the analysis provided by J.J. McNabb, who is unquestionably one of the leading experts on the movement from the outside. And while they let movement guru Alfred Adask run off at the mouth, in the end his own radicalism and complete lack of any connection to reality were made self-evident by his own words.
