    A crowd of students surrounds the Native American man, laughing and filming on cell phones. One boy, wearing a red Make America Great Again hat, stands just inches away from the man’s drum, staring at him with a wide smile.

    Nathan Phillips, an Omaha elder participating in the Indigenous Peoples March, keeps drumming and singing.

    The jeers of the students – and Phillips’ stoic response – were captured in a video that has sparked widespread criticism and drawn an apology from a Kentucky prep school and diocese.
