St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church presents Documentary Screening - "Stolen Land, Strong Hearts"

Date:Friday, June 14, 2019
Time:7 - 9 p.m.
Location:    St. John's Anglican Church (99 Brock St., Peterborough)
St John's presents “Doctrine of Discovery: Stolen Lands, Strong Hearts”, a film about a devastating decision, made over 500 years ago, which continues to profoundly impact Indigenous and Settler people worldwide. Pope Alexander VI ruled that the lands being discovered by European explorers at the time was “empty” land and its millions of Indigenous inhabitants were “non-human”. The evening will include a welcome from Executive Producer the Rev. Canon Ginny Doctor, a presentation on Indigenous spirituality from Lynn Gehl, the film, and a time for discussion. Light refreshments will be provided.
