In this podcast, an Indigenous woman and a white settler woman — both Anabaptists — uncover the deep structure of colonization that systematically deprives Indigenous Peoples of their human rights today. This deep structure — called the Doctrine of Discovery— is rooted in church doctrines that originated in the15th century and that still justify current laws and policies that justify the removal of land from Indigenous Peoples.
The Dismantling the Doctrine of Discovery Podcast is produced in partnership with the Dismantling the Doctrine of Discovery Coalition and Anabaptist World. The views expressed in this podcast do not represent official views of Anabaptist World.
Sarah Augustine and Sheri Hostetler started this Coalition of Anabaptist people of faith that seek to dismantle the Doctrine of Discovery. Sarah is an activist and scholar, the descendant of the Tewa People, and a displaced person. Sheri is a Mennonite pastor in San Francisco and an activist.
