“Roots of Injustice, Seeds of Change: Toward Right Relationship with Native Peoples”

is a 2-hour participatory workshop, appropriate for high school students and adults. The history of the colonization of Turtle Island, the land that is now known as the United States, will be told through the words of Indigenous leaders, European/American leaders, and Western historians. We will engage with this history through experiential exercises and small group discussions. And we’ll be invited to consider how we can build relationships with Indigenous peoples based on truth, respect, justice, and our shared humanity.
