Native Nations: Standing Together for Civil Rights airs March 1st

Dear Editor

I thought you might be interested in a special program that will be airing on Hallmark Channel Sunday, March 1 at 7 a.m. Odyssey Networks, the nation’s largest coalition of Christian, Jewish and Muslim faith groups dedicated to media production, distribution and promotion, will be airing Native Nations: Standing Together for Civil Rights on Odyssey Networks Presents, a series of select one-hour programs dealing with issues

of social justice and reconciliation. Native Nations was produced by B&B Productions for the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and funded in part by a grant from Odyssey Networks.

Native Nations is hosted by Peter Coyote, and it chronicles the American Indians' struggle for civil rights, and the creation of the National Indian Lutheran Board to raise funds for and awareness of that struggle. From the controversy surrounding the 1862 trial when 38 Dakota Sioux were executed in the largest single-day mass hanging in United States history, to the confrontation of the 1960s where many Indian tribes joined together to speak out with a unified voice. Native Nations tells the story of standing together for sovereignty, justice and civil rights.
