Serving God, Changing Lives

Indigenous Peoples Month events

​In honor of Indigenous Peoples Month, the ELCA is remembering the National Indian Lutheran Board (NILB) in two separate Zoom sessions, November 9 and 10.  The NILB, a pan-Lutheran organization founded 50 years ago, established relationships between Lutherans and Tribal Nations and Leaders.

On Monday, Nov. 9 at 7 p.m. CST (6 p.m. MST) join the screening of “Native Nations Standing Together for Civil Rights,” a one-hour documentary exploring the role of the National Indian Lutheran Board and actions taken during the American Indian civil rights movement of the 1960s and 1980s in Indian Country.  ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton will comment on the video.
Hosted by Vance Blackfox and Other+Wise (

During this 90-minute session, the participants will look back to a unique and treasured time when Indians and Lutherans came together to understand one another, to appreciate each other’s cultures, and to join in a fight for justice in Indian Country. In celebrating this milestone of history, many look forward to reinvigorating the relationship between Indians and Lutherans and renewing the commitments to work for justice together.
