The new country would issue its own passports and driving licences,

A Lakota driving license. And a passport. That should be awesome. I am moving to Lakota land boys, where I won't pay taxes and smoke all the Peyote my heart desires. Fantastic. I wonder who put them up to this?
They also visited the Bolivian, Chilean, South African and Venezuelan
