Join us in an interactive two-hour exercise that traces the historic and ongoing impacts of the Doctrine of Discovery, the 15th century legal justification for European subjugation of the land and peoples of this continent. The workshop, a response to a call from Indigenous leaders of the UN and World Council of Churches, will help us increase awareness of these impacts, recognize them in ourselves and our institutions, and explore how we might begin to take actions toward right relationship with Indigenous peoples.

Brenna Cussen Anglada is an activist, organic farmer, facilitator, writer and co-founder of St. Isidore Catholic Worker Farm (Cuba City, Wisconsin), a project focusing on community, food justice, education and decolonization.

Paula Palmer is a sociologist, writer and activist for human rights, social justice and environmental protection. In collaboration with Native American advisers, she created this workshop.
