Roots of Injustice, Seeds of Change
Toward Right Relationship with Native Peoples
Saturday May 15, 3:00-5:00 pm MDT
"All things are our relatives; what we do to everything, we do to ourselves. All is really One."
In this 2-hour participatory workshop, we hear the story of the colonization of this land in the words of Indigenous leaders, Euro-American leaders, and Western historians. We take part in the story through experiential exercises, and share our responses and reflections in small groups. Together, we explore steps that we can take to build relationships with Native peoples based on truth, respect, and justice.
Here are some responses from recent participants in our Zoom workshop:
From non-Native participants:
“The thoughtful way that you presented this information made it so much more powerful.”
"Wow - that was an excellent workshop. Best zoom educational experience I have had!"
“I've known and thought about indigenous peoples' history for a long time. Now what I can do is much more in the forefront of my mind.”
"This is a wonderful model for fostering conversations that lead to more understanding among peoples."
From Native participants:
"Everything that went into this experience and the presentation is so deeply meaningful."
"This workshop is the tool I’ve been searching for to begin imagining a new way forward.”
