The Doctrine of Discovery

The legal justification for the colonization of the Americas and the subordination of aboriginal people is a narrative unfamiliar to many Americans. Yet the Doctrine is so deeply embedded in American and Western culture that it hides in plain sight. The Doctrine of Discovery is key to understanding and reconstructing many of today’s public debates, particularly debates about immigration. The UUA Board calls us to open our minds, hearts, and spirits to the implications and the potential of a new, truer story of how this continent was settled and our nation formed.  Three sessions define the issue, contextualize it with native voices, and guide a plan of action. The class will be led by Rev. Margret and Jean Ott, Tuesday evenings, 7-8 pm, May 22, 29 and June 5. Register with Sonja Jensen at dre@buffalouu.org.
