Learn & Connect: Deconstructing the Doctrine of Discovery

January 20, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Learn + Connect is a free online program that has been developed so participants can explore colonial perspectives of history, reflect on how that influences our understanding and actions, and discuss ways we can move forward. This session will look at the Doctrine of Discovery through the lens of a film put out by the Anglican Church* about the devastating ruling by Pope Alexander VI that decreed that any land inhabited by Indigenous Peoples was declared “empty” and the inhabitants “non-human”. “Doctrine of Discovery: Stolen Land, Strong Hearts” will be the foundation of our enquiry into how this centuries old document continues to profoundly – and negatively – impact Indigenous people today.
