Winter Talk 2019 “Doctrine of Discovery Repudiated~Now What?”
February 25 - February 27
February 25-27 at Phillips Theological Seminary in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
The Sixth annual Winter Talk is a three day conversation on the Christian Doctrine of Discovery (DOD) and its influence on Christian theology and polity, with an emphasis on the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) relationship with Indigenous tribes and peoples. Hosted by the Yakama Christian Mission Council, and Phillips Theological Seminary, Winter Talk is dedicated to furthering the conversation on the Christian Doctrine of Discovery and its dismantling.
Winter Talk is an important time for American Indians and non-Indians, to gather and eat, learn, and talk about the impact of the Christian Doctrine of Discovery. This is a space of accountability to American Indians where the Indian voice is the principal voice in an exploration of the past, an understanding of the present, and a visioning of the future.
