AnchorIndigenous - Settler Relations

Last week, an all white jury acquitted farmer Gerald Stanley for the fatal shooting of Colten Boushie (Red Pheasant First Nation). The decision has unmasked, once again, the deep fracture between Indigenous and Settler peoples and the need for radical, structural change, to our legal systems and to our collective relationships. Pray for transformation; that Settler peoples would do our work to undo our racism; that the Church will join, in greater measure, Indigenous led efforts to reform colonial structures that continue to oppress.
