Workshop: Toward Right Relationship with Native Peoples

Sat Jun 10 | 4-6 pm, online
4:00 pm

As part of St. Mark’s relationship building with St. Christopher’s Mission in Navajoland in Bluff, Utah, take this opportunity to participate in the online workshop Roots of Injustice, Seeds of Change: Toward Right Relationship with Native Peoples.

Developed by Friends Peace Teams at the request of Indigenous leaders at the United Nations and the World Council of Churches, this two-hour participatory workshop is suitable 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 learn why this history matters to all Americans today. We’ll also be invited to consider how we can build relationships with Indigenous peoples based on truth, respect, justice, and our shared humanity.

Sponsored by UN Indigenous leaders and the World Council of Churches.  Participants are asked to donate $25.
