Doctrine of Discovery: Taking A Hard Look At Our History and Theology

This fall, Cherokee Park United Church is taking a hard look at difficult historical and theological truths about the tragic treatment of Dakota, Ojibwe and other Indigenous people by our state, nation and religious institutions. In cooperation with the St. Paul Interfaith Network (SPIN), we are seeking to come to terms with the significant role churches and faith communities played in genocide, crushing Native languages, cultures and religious practices. Cherokee Park United Church is one of four metro sites working with SPIN to host these conversations.

We will host two dialogue events at our church, Cherokee Park United Church 371 W Baker St, St Paul, MN (MAP)
