The Native American man who said he was left ‘shaken and overwhelmed’ by Kentucky Catholic high school students on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial turned out again the next day to lead 60 protesters up the steps of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, allegedly to disrupt a mass.

Nathan Phillips, 64, joined dozens of supporters in Washington DC on Saturday night outside the shrine while hundreds were inside worshiping.

The article goes on to state the following:

According to security guards who work for the Basilica and spoke anonymously to the Catholic News Agency, the group tried to enter the building while the 5.15pm mass was going on and had to be stopped.

‘It was really upsetting. There were about twenty people trying to get in, we had to lock the doors and everything.

‘We had hundreds and hundreds of people from all over the country come here to celebrate life, to celebrate each other together. That a protest tried to come inside during Mass was really the worst.

Michelle Brass, a woman from Saskatchewan, posted on Facebook that she was one of about 60 people who gathered outside the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in D.C., as they held a protest rally in support of Phillips, and against the Catholic Church.

Supporters of Phillips denounced the Catholic Church, claiming the students “surrounded, harassed and mistreated” Phillips. They called for “accountability from the Catholic Church,” and slammed the values they’re teaching the students. A speaker said it represents the “colonial violence the Catholic Church represents every day.”

 

“Demands” put forth by the International Indigenous Youth Council to the Catholic Church were read, including the demand that “the students of Covington High School be reprimanded, not only by school officials, but as seniors, by their upcoming universities.”

The group also denounced the Catholic Church for “500 years of genocide” that their people have endured, and demanded their land be returned.

A Native American supporting Phillips tweeted, “That elder stared right back in the eyes of a colonizer. The boy was filled with so much mockery and hatred. But our elder, all he had was good medicine and healing in his heart. Even though it infuriates me, I’m so happy I come from a people with immeasurable strength.”
