January 2023 Peace & Justice Program

January 29, 2023 @ 1:00 pm – 2:15 pm

On Sunday, January 29th at 1 p.m. we will watch a video on Quaker Boarding schools that housed and “educated” Native American Children. This presentation and research features Paula Palmer of the Boulder CO Meeting.  https://www.boulderfriendsmeeting.org/paula-palmer-bio/  In addition it includes a Native American woman with The National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition. https://boardingschoolhealing.org/ They share historic and heartfelt words about these children’s experiences in these boarding schools.

The presentation itself is approximately 1 hour and 10  minutes. At the end of the presentation, there are four suggested worship-sharing/discussion queries. The total time for this “special event” is estimated to be 1 hour and 40 minutes. This video was provided by NPYM as part of the Resources for Minute of Support for Indigenous People Resources for Minute of Support for Indigenous People.pdf Sponsored by BCFM Peace and Justice Committee.
