The program airs Oct. 12 through the end of 2008 at various times and dates on ABC television network affiliate stations.

Peter Coyote hosts "Native Nations," which B&B Productions produced for the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). The project was developed over 18 months on locations including Albuquerque, Minneapolis and the Navajo Nation.

"Native Nations" is "a historical documentary of the Indian civil rights movement as viewed through the relationship between the Indian people on and off the reservation and the Lutheran churches," said Syd Beane, co-producer, Minneapolis. It focuses on the 18-year life of the National Indian Lutheran Board. Beane was a board member and served as president.
