The Loss of Turtle Island

The Underground, Mund

We are honored to partner with the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference of the United Methodist Church’s Committee on Native American Ministries as they present this participatory learning experience depicting the historical relationship between European settlers (convinced of their Christian superiority) and the Indigenous nations, the original inhabitants of the land we now call the United States of America.

Blankets represent the land and participants represent distinct Indigenous nations who experience colonization, genocide, broken treaties, forced removal, assimilation, and termination—all in the spirit of the Doctrine of Discovery.

Students are encouraged to sign up on Redbook. Staff, faculty, and community members can RSVP by contacting Andrea Haldeman at haldeman@lvc.edu.
