2022-11-21T10:54:12-08:00

Dear Fielding Community members, It is with shock and deep sadness that we send this message to you regarding the shooting at Club Q in Colorado Springs, which took the lives of many 2SLGBTQ+ individuals.

As this tragedy continues to unfold, we are reminded of the 2016 shooting that occurred in Orlando, Florida, at the Pulse nightclub in [...]

Indigenous Peoples Day Acknowledgement with guest speaker Steven Newcomb

2022-10-03T11:58:02-07:00

The Doctrine of Discovery: Unmasking the Domination Code This presentation explores how the Doctrine of Discovery provides the larger historical context for Pope Francis’ recent trip to Turtle Island (“Canada”) and the various calls for truth and reconciliation. Understanding the Doctrine of Discovery is critical in understanding how Indigenous policy today has been informed by our past. Issues addressed include challenges to Tribal sovereignty, land stewardship and loss,  “boarding schools” in the United States as well as “residential schools” in Canada. Such understandings allow us to reflect on how and in what ways we can make meaningful change, that [...]
