Though many historical policies continue to shape the lives of indigenous people, few are as powerful still as the Doctrine of Discovery, a concept perpetuated by European monarchies to justify colonization outside of the continent — and an idea Thomas Jefferson brought to the U.S. in 1792. Find out how the doctrine still impacts the world at the Doctrine of Discovery and Beyond discussion hosted by the Colorado Council of Churches, Rocky Mountain Synod and Iliff School of Theology. Held on Monday, October 9, traditionally known as Columbus Day, the discussion begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Iliff School of Theology, 2323 East Iliff Avenue.
