Deconstructing the Doctrine of Discovery

February 3 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The second session in the Learn + Connect series, invites participants back to a discussion about the Doctrine of Discovery to explore themes around land theft, genocide and personal responsibility towards reconciliation.

The Doctrine of Discovery was a late-medieval philosophy that was used to justify imperialist ventures and legitimize the colonization of Indigenous peoples in various regions around the world. The centuries old document informed Canada’s earliest European explorers, and continues to profoundly – and negatively – impact Indigenous people today.
