Presented by the National Council of Churches USA, produced by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America Native Nations, hosted by Peter Coyote, chronicles the American Indians’ struggle for civil rights, and the creation of the National Indian Lutheran Board to raise funds and awareness for 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 when 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.

Passing Time, Saving Lives

Is your boss on your case about wasting time online? You may get a break if you explain you’re being benevolent, not lazy. At www.freerice.com a fun vocabulary game will not only test your intelligence, but for each question you answer correctly, 20 grains of rice will be donated to help end hunger. Since its launch in Oct. 2007, FreeRice has donated more than 40 billion grains of rice and fed more than 1 million hungry people. (World Ark, Nov/Dec, 2008).


I am pleased that our church is signing on to FPU. I will be a counSelor.

Myron
