You are invited to view and meditate on the Dismantling the Doctrine of Discovery exhibit, located on 2nd Floor Quad (across from the Benedictine Institute). The visual display series was created to tell the Anabaptist Christian settler story in this country, how it impacted indigenous people and their lands…and still does.
Wednesday, November 30 – Tuesday, December 6
This 8-panel display series was created to educate and raise awareness about the Doctrine of Discovery, a philosophical and legal framework giving Christian governments moral and legal rights to invade and seize indigenous lands and dominate indigenous people.
