“Roots of Injustice, Seeds of Change: Towards Right Relationship With America’s Native Peoples”

Sunday, Apr 17, 2016, 2:00 pm

Roots of Injustice, Seeds of Change: Toward Right Relationship with America’s Native Peoples is a powerful interactive exercise. Through a participatory process, we trace the historic and ongoing impacts of the Doctrine of Discovery, the 15th-century justification for European subjugation of non-Christian peoples. Our goal is to raise our level of knowledge and concern about these impacts, recognize them in ourselves and our institutions, and explore how we can begin to take actions toward “right relationship.” In the Doctrine of Discovery, we find the roots of injustice. In the U.N. Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, we find the seeds of change. How can we nurture these seeds to bring forth the fruits of right relationship among all peoples?
