Indigenous Peoples' Day Service of Reconciliation (Oberlin)
Settler colonialism brought genocide, disease, and heartbreak to indigenous populations. It also brought a form of Christianity which sought to obliterate the spirituality of indigenous people with forced conversions and threat of death. Truth-telling is the beginning of reconciliation. This service is one small part of addressing this history and legacy in our nation.
