Skip TODAY Show, Watch This Interview With Nathan Phillips Instead

While the nation continues to ignore the point of the Indigenous Peoples March to focus on the racist, sexist White teens who popped up on the scene, take a few minutes to watch this January 22 Democracy Now! interview with Nathan Phillips, the Omaha elder they disrespected on camera. From the interview:
