The Doctrine of Discovery

Potluck, Movie and Discussion

Friday, March 29 at the University Community Presbyterian Church

Potluck at 6:00, Movie starts at 7:00

Papal Bulls of the 15th and 16th Centuries gave “Christian” nations the right to discover and dominate lands occupied by non-Christian peoples. Through an 1823 Supreme Court decision by Justice John Marshall these bulls still form the foundation of laws concerning indigenous peoples in the United States today. This movie explains how this happened and its implications today. Sponsored by the Alaska Peace Center, the University Community Presbyterian Church, and Native Movement. See the flyer.
