The face-off went down Friday at the D.C. National Mall — near Arlington National Cemetery — where Omaha elder Nathan Phillips, who served in the Vietnam War, was drumming and singing toward the tail end of the Indigenous People’s March.
According to eye witnesses and local reports, a mob of MAGA hat-wearing teenagers suddenly swarmed around a Native American Vietnam veteran to harass and drown out his peaceful demonstration.
Phillips addressed the altercation afterward in an emotional explanation of why he was singing, and how he internalized what had just happened to him. You can watch his full response below.
