Unmasking the Domination Code

Initiated as a Papal declaration in 1455, the “Doctrine of Discovery” has been a fundamental moral & legal justification for European colonization for the past 500 years.
Indigenous people have been resisting myriad forms of domination, genocide & resource greed for 500 years, including now at Standing Rock, and elsewhere.
There is a budding movement to have the Catholic Church join some other Christian traditions in repudiating the Doctrine of Discovery as a beginning of atonement & apology to Indigenous peoples.
On this evening before Thanksgiving, come learn more about the historical roots of genocide & resource extraction in North America, as well as Indigenous resistance & resilience.
A facilitated discussion is included
