This is elder Nathan Phillips, an Omaha elder who is also a Vietnam Veteran and former director of the Native Youth Alliance.

He is a keeper of a sacred pipe and holds an annual ceremony honoring Native American veterans in the Arlington National Cemetery.

I stand with him.

@RedTRaccoon I just want to know why. If I had ever put myself that far into the face of an elder, I would have been slapped across the room. What gives these students the idea that they can insert themselves into other people鈥檚 space this way? The disrespect is galling.

@RedTRaccoon Someone on another thread pointed out that the elder, towards the end, had a spiritual transcendence (as the purpose of the ritual is to do just that) and thus tuned out that kid and the mob, suppressing feelings of intimidation and,most importantly, hate.

@RedTRaccoon Ignorance knows no bounds in the age of #trump. Peer pressure & group think are dangerous for teens & can become even more dangerous for those around them when they morph into gangs.

Perhaps they should be taught that Native Americans are the only TRUE Americans in our nation?
