Course Description

This course examines how we as individuals, living in a country founded on conquest, genocide, and slavery, are embedded within a system of racial hierarchy and how we, as humans, come to this moment. The very real consequences of the Doctrine of Discovery are now playing out in our national politics.

This will be a sweeping look at human history, starting over 34,000 years ago and continuing to the present. We will study Christianity and its fundamental role in colonialism and American history past and present. The course will also study the actual working documents, laws, and rulings here in the US and Canada that exist to this day, based on the Doctrine of Discovery.
