“Centering and Othering: Elevating white normativity, suppressing racial and indigenous identities" is the fourth session in a five-part discussion of the “Doctrine of Discovery,” a theological and legal concept that has legitimized the seizure of indigenous people's lands by those from so-called Christian nations. The series begins with discussion of its impact in North America and then broadens to Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and beyond.
