Doctrine of Christian Discovery Podcast

The conference The Religious Origins of White Supremacy: Johnson v. M’Intosh and the Doctrine of Christian Discovery represented a unique opportunity. Indigenous leaders, scholars, and activists from 20 countries gathered together with non-Indigenous peoples for a collaborative dialogue around three themes 1) the Doctrine of Christian Discovery, 2) the legacy of Johnson v M’Intosh; and 3) the religious origins of white supremacy. The conference intentionally incorporated the arts with two powerful indigenous performances In the Court of the Conqueror and Tēnei Te Põ Nau Mai Te Ao: Ancient Māori Puppetry Healing Traumatic Histories. Additionally art and poetry were present in many sessions.

M’Intosh (1823) and the 15th century Doctrine of (Christian) Discovery – a legal and religious rationale by which European powers claimed the right to discover and claim lands inhabited by non-Christian peoples.
