Event description
A documentary on the Doctrine of Discovery, Reconciliation, Indigenous Rights and Justice.

About this Event

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 were “empty” land and its millions of Indigenous inhabitants were “non-human”.

Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission released 94 Calls to Action in 2015, with many of them referring to the Doctrine of Discovery and calling for its repudiation. This film is one of the responses of the Anglican Church’s Primate’s Commission on Discovery, Reconciliation and Justice.

The purpose of this film is to respond to the calls to action by helping to provide education and insight into the racist foundations of many of our property and other laws still in existence to this day. The screening is open to everyone and will be very informative for anyone wanting to move on the 94 Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Report.

Admission is free but donations will be accepted at the door.

Hosted by Amnesty International: Kelowna, First Mennonite Church, First United Church and Kelowna Sunrise Rotary Club. This film is one of the responses of the Anglican Church’s Primate’s Commission on the Doctrine of Discovery, Reconciliation and Justice.
