Coalition to Dismantle the Doctrine of Discovery

Learn about a growing coalition of Anabaptists and people of faith who are working in solidarity with Indigenous-led partners to heal the harm caused by the Doctrine of Discovery and related supremacist systems and structures. The Coalition’s website has curriculum and reparative justice resources that can be downloaded.
Resources for Knowing Your Place
- Luke Gascho compiled a list of resources to aid in gaining a deeper understanding of the places where we live. The links and suggestions are a compilation of sources he used to learn about the trail the Indigenous people used for centuries. The resources can be adapted to other locations across the continent.
