Roots of Injustice, Seeds of Change: Working Toward Right Relationships with Native People
October 25, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Sunday, October 25, 4 – 6 pm
Online, free, and open to the public
Join us for this unique, experiential workshop tracing the historic roots 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 with Native peoples. The Toward Right Relationship Project offers this workshop in response to calls from Indigenous leaders at the United Nations and the World Council of Churches..
Presented by First United Methodist Church, Bellevue with Friends Peace Teams, established by Quakers in 1993, a Spirit-led organization working to develop long-term relationships with communities in conflict around the world to create programs for peacebuilding, healing, and reconciliation.
