Roots of Injustice, Seeds of Change – Toward Right Relationship with Native Peoples

March 21 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

$15.00
Corn

We offer this 2-hour workshop in response to calls from Indigenous leaders at the United Nations and the World Council of Churches. Through an experiential exercise, 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 Native and non-Native peoples?

Facilitator: Kat Griffith is a Quaker writer, activist and former teacher and home schooler. She has led this workshop with several religious and educational institutions in Wisconsin, and hopes to help  others start taking meaningful steps towards “right relationship” with Native peoples.
