The Toward Right Relationship project offers this workshop in response to calls
from Indigenous leaders at the United Nations and the World Council of Churches.
The 2-hour exercise traces the historic and ongoing impacts of the Doctrine of
Discovery, the 15th-century justification for European subjugation of non-Christian
peoples. Our goal is to raise our level of knowledge and concern about these impacts,
recognize them in ourselves and our institutions, and explore how we can begin to
take actions toward “right relationship.” We provide a Resource Kit with suggestions
for continued study, reflection, and action.

In the Doctrine of Discovery, we find the roots of injustice. In the U.N.
Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, we find the seeds of change. How can
we nurture these seeds to bring forth the fruits of right relationship among all peoples?
