Indian Boarding Schools:
History, Historical Trauma and Healing

Native American Workshop

October 10, 2015, 10:00am to 3:00pm

Every year, the cathedral’s Native American Council holds a workshop to explore the various challenges facing Native Americans today and the ways in which people of faith can address these issues. Also every year, our nation celebrates Columbus Day. However, for some, this holiday is not a time of celebration, but serves as a painful annual remin…der of the Europeans’ brutal settlement and conquest of the Americas. For this reason, CHRC is exploring efforts to transform the holiday name and supports this year’s Native American workshop at the cathedral. This workshop will look at the consequences for native peoples of the European settlement, particularly in relationship to boarding schools in which Native American children were forced to enroll. Yet, the focus need not be only on the grief.
“This time can also be a time of learning and understanding,” said Sarah Eagle Heart, the Episcopal Church’s former officer for Indigenous Ministries. “Columbus Day could instead be a time to turn away from those things done ‘on behalf’ of Native Americans so that we all might come to live in justice and peace with all people.”
Since lunch is being provided at no charge, registrations are required for this workshop. To register, contact John Grate: jgrate[at]fuse.net
