Disavowing the Doctrine of Discovery:
Acknowledgment, Dialogue and Response

This fall, Cherokee Park United is hosting an interfaith dialogue to take a hard look at difficult truths about the tragic treatment of Indigenous people by our state, nation and religious Institutions. For the first session, Monday, Oct. 13, at 7 p.m., we will view and discuss the film “Doctrine of Discovery” which explores the history and legacy of 15th Century papal edicts that gave early explorers the legal and religious justification to subjugate Native peoples and seize Native lands. Filmmaker Sheldon Wolfchild will attend. The second session, Tuesday, Oct. 28 at 7 p.m., will include a panel and small group discussions of how the trauma from this history is still very alive today and affects all of us. Both sessions are here at the church. The St. Paul Interfaith Network and several other religious and civic institutions are co-sponsoring the series. For more information, ask Pastor Tim Johnson or see the SPIN website at http://spinterfaith.org/recurring-progams/fall-2014-interfaith-dialog-series.html
