Indigenous Justice

These short Fact Sheets were created for the April 10, 2018 religious leaders Sacred Sites Tour and retreat to discuss steps towards healing with tribal communities.

These fact sheets were created to acknowledge that Native peoples have suffered deep trauma over many years, losing their land, language and culture, and all who call Minnesota home are the lesser for it. While many people and institutions contributed to that trauma, it happened with the full participation of Christian churches. We all still need healing, healing is doable, and churches have a role to play in addressing these historical wrongs, healing and repair.
