From Popes to Presidents, the “Doctrine of Discovery” has empowered global leaders to steal the land of indigenous peoples throughout history.

This five-part series explores the history and impact of the doctrine and the legacy of conquest that Christians have perpetuated to this day.

Join us for Part Three on December 8th as we uncover how dehumanization and violence were used to perpetuate the Doctrine of Discovery and how that continues today.
