On Monday, October 8, our nation celebrates Columbus Day. For some, this holiday serves as a painful annual reminder of the Europeans’ brutal settlement and conquest of the Americas. Many states, local governments and institutions have chosen to declare the day as Indigenous Peoples’ Day, a time for learning and understanding. A time to turn away from those things done ‘on behalf’ of Native Americans so that we all might come to live in justice and peace with all people.
Join Christ Church Cathedral for an annual workshop and panel discussion on Saturday, October 6 to learn more about our Native American brothers and sisters, and understand the broader scope of the Indigenous Peoples’ experiences, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sponsored by the cathedral’s Native American Ministry Council.
This is a free event with lunch included, but registrations are required. Go to Eventbrite.com and search Indigenous People, or go to https://bit.ly/2OEzwlSNACFlyer_4
