Indigenous Justice Book Studies Begin in September

The Province 1 Indigenous People’s Justice Network and the Episcopal Diocese of Maine Committee on Indian Relations invite you to a series of book studies beginning with a discussion of The Gatherings: Reimagining Indigenous-Settler Relationships by Rev. Shirley Bowen and Shirley Hager. That discussion will be on Wednesday, September 13, 7:00-8:15 PM on Zoom. The co-authors will join the discussion!

The book documents what happened when Indigenous and non-Indigenous people participated in a series of long weekend gatherings over several years, in an Indigenous-led traditional Council format. Seven Indigenous and seven non-Indigenous authors, collectively Mawopiyane (a Passamaquoddy word that translates “Let us sit together”), and share their experiences in their own words. It’s available here or any bookstore or online outlet.
