In this first episode of "Courageous Conversations", Dan Hawk is our guest. The topic of discussion is cultural narratives or the cover stories societies tell themselves to brand their history and minimize its unsavory events. What narrative lenses do we wear that assist us in crafting the myths of our place in the world?
Thank you Drs.!
I do love me some Dr. Hawk.
What you shared in this video is necessary for the Church to hear.
I became aware of the Doctrine of Discovery and what that has led to by listening to and reading Steven Newcomb, esp. "Pagans in the Promised Land." It was really difficult to wrap my head around the disparity of what I was taught as a child and what the reality seems to be. It has helped me to reorganize my world view as a white, male in the U.S. I appreciate Dr. Hawk's continued involvement and witness to how we colonists have abused our Indigenous sisters and brothers. And continue to do so. Awareness may be the first step toward confession and repentance.
Blessings to you both.
Thanks for your helpful comments.
