October 17 Sermon Follow-Up

This past Sunday, Jan Sprinkel and I reflected on the experiences of Indigenous peoples in our region and country. In my sermon (“Many Have Inhabited These Lands”) I referenced the work of Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz in her book, An Indigenous People’s History of the United States (Beacon Press, 2014). One review describes this book as “A radical re-visioning of U.S. history from an Indigenous people’s perspective.” It is a reliable read (quite detailed) for those wanting to more fully understand the many injustices that have been inflicted upon Native Americans for centuries. If anyone would like me to set up a further group discussion on this topic, please be in touch and we’ll set up a session.
