This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the National Indian Lutheran Board (NILB). To commemorate the incredible work and alliance of the NILB with the American Indian Movement and American Indian civil rights movement in the 1970s and 80s, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America is hosting two related events...
The first is the film screening of "Native Nations: Standing Together for Civil Rights," with words from ELCA's Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton, on Monday, November 9, 2020, at 7 p.m. CST; hosted by Vance Blackfox and Other+Wise (www.otherwise.red).
The second is a follow up discussion with elders and former leaders of the National Indian Lutheran Board on Tuesday, November 10, 2020, at 10 a.m. CST. (A separate registration will be made available for this discussion.)
ABOUT "NATIVE NATIONS"
"Native Nations: Standing Together
for Civil Rights" is a one-hour documentary exploring the
role of the Lutheran church in the American Indian civil
rights movement of the 1970s and 1980s. The program begins
airing Oct. 12 on ABC television network affiliate stations
across the United States. Local stations may broadcast the
program at various times and dates through December 2008.
Peter Coyote hosts "Native Nations," which B & B
Productions produced for the Evangelical Lutheran Church
in America (ELCA). The project was in development for 18
months on locations including Albuquerque, Minneapolis and
the Navajo Nation.
"Native Nations" is "a historical documentary of the
Indian civil rights movement as viewed through the relationship
between the Indian people on and off the reservation and the
Lutheran churches," said Syd Beane, co-producer, Minneapolis.
It focuses on "the National Indian Lutheran Board and the
various issues, activism and organizing events that took place
over some 18 years," he said. Beane was a member of the
National Indian Lutheran Board and served as its president.
