The Doctrine of Discovery: The Episcopal Church, Indigenous Peoples, and the Necessity of Decolonizing Christianity – A Presentation and Discussion with the Rev. Rachel Taber-Hamilton
January 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The Doctrine of Discovery historically informed the legal premise for justifying the forces of colonialism, including the enslavement of African and Asian peoples as well as the oppression and genocide of Indigenous peoples. The Rev. Taber-Hamilton, who is Shackan First Nation and rector of Trinity Episcopal Church in Everett, will share the historical development of the Doctrine of Discovery, the historical role of the Church, and real-world contemporary examples of its continuing impact. Come learn how allies can help deconstruct the effects of the Doctrine of Discovery as a social force in our Church, in our nation, and in our world.
