ABOUT THE DOCTRINE OF DISCOVERY
The Doctrine of Discovery is the philosophical and legal framework that justified invading and seizing Indigenous lands and dominating Indigenous Peoples by 15th century Christian governments. This framework formed the basis for patterns of oppression that continues today through concepts of precedent and ideas of ownership, including U.S. Supreme Court rulings as recent as 2005. These concepts created a foundation of domination that legitimates ongoing displacement of Indigenous Peoples, and harm the earth.
PERFORMANCE AT PORTLAND MENNONITE CHURCH
SATURDAY NOVEMBER 16, 7:00 PM
PLAN NOW TO JOIN US FOR A VERY SPECIAL EVENING.
Portland Mennonite Church is proud to welcome TED & Co back to the PNW for this unique and moving piece of art and storytelling. The show is free but there will be an offering to help cover the costs of bringing the show to the North West. Thank you for giving what you can!
WHAT AMOUNT SHOULD I GIVE?
A SUGGESTED AMOUNT would be $20.
The majority of the cost of bringing the show to PMC will be covered by the church budget. We will need to raise an additional $700 on the night of the show. However, if you wish to support the work that TED & CO are doing in other places please give generously. Thank you for supporting our Mennonite Artists!
