I've been watching videos all day. I have one thing to say (in a bunch of tweets, so hold on): The videos BACK UP/STRENGTHEN Mr. Nathan Phillips' account of what happened toward the conclusion of the #IndigenousPeoplesMarch on Saturday. They also reveal how it all happened. 1/
1. I attended the #IndigenousPeoplesMarch from 8:30am-1pm. We started on the stairs of the Department of Interior and marched to Lincoln Memorial. The spirit was peaceful. The call was for indigenous people and allies to receive the wisdom of the elders/remember who we are. 2/
2. While I was at #IPMDC19 at Lincoln Memorial I neither saw, nor heard any competing rally or street preachers. I did see a huge group that took up most of the steps. They took a picture on the Lincoln Memorial steps. Many in the group seemed to have red caps. 3/

Truth. So-called “civilization” efforts in the United States were intended to transform Native peoples into second-class members of settler colonial society & take our land. They rest on a foundation built by religious orders and churches (both Catholic & Protestant). 1/
We don’t spend enough time talking abt colonial schooling beyond the boarding schools of the late 19th c. These efforts go back to the earliest moments of colonialism; they’re integral to major universities in the US, including Harvard, Dartmouth, William & Mary. 2/

Most disgusting thing I’ve ever seen. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the next generation of white male “Christian” Republicans. This happened after I left the #IndigenousPeoplesMarch at Lincoln Memorial yesterday. Native elder surrounded and jeered by #MarchForLife group.
This group took a picture at top of steps earlier. One boy clearly has a #MarchForLife T-shirt on. From this angle it is clearer what’s happening. The instigator is challenging the Native elder for the space. The group cheers over elder’s song. #IPMDC19
