Environmental Film and Speaker Series Presentation: The Doctrine of Recovery

November 9, 2023

On Thursday, Nov. 9, 2023, between 7-9 PM, attendees will have the chance to view this widely acclaimed film, which won the 2023 Dreamspeakers Feature Documentary award.
Since 1493, the so-called Doctrine of Discovery has justified the dispossession and decimation of the Indigenous inhabitants of North America and brought us to our present environmental breaking point. The Doctrine of Recovery is an Indigenous antidote to rebalance Earth systems, restore the sacred feminine, and ensure our species survival.
Three generations of Tribal women – Casey Camp-Horinek, Crystle Lightning, and Juliet Langley Hayes – speak on what has gone unspoken, and unapologetically expose the influence of founding patriarchs and white supremacy in places most never thought to look, and in doing so demonstrate the ongoing and devastating formula patterned by the Doctrine of Discovery.
