20. DOCTRINE OF DISCOVERY (UAICC)

That the Assembly

1. repudiate the Doctrine of Discovery, and its theological foundations as a relic of colonialism, feudalism, and religious, cultural, and racial biases that have no place in the treatment of First Peoples; and

2. affirm the WCC “Statement on the Doctrine of Discovery Impact on Indigenous Peoples”, and encourage its consideration in the church and, in particular, in theological colleges.
