We continue to prepare in many ways: through the Environmental Justice Practitioners Network presentations by Indigenous leaders; reading An Indigenous History of the US; moving through the Canadian Truth and Reconciliation process; long term relationship through Inter National Initiative for Transformative Collaboration; Water Protectors Support Network; congregational alternatives to the settler -derived Thanksgiving Day celebrations; workshops at GA 2019, and preparation for GA 2020 which falls on the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower landing; a call by our DRUUMM Indian Network to focus on repudiation of Doctrine of Discovery.
We have learned much, must continue to learn, and are called by our faith to show up in a good way. Come learn and share.
