What are the NEXT STEPS BEYOND LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT  of the Indigenous Peoples who lived on and cared for this land before us?

Several members of the Black Mountain UU congregation attended the powerful and moving online workshop “Roots of Injustice, Seeds of Change” in February, and they highly recommend attending one of the online sessions coming up soon. 

Sessions are available on these dates:

Sunday March 12, 4:00 to 6:00 pm ET or

Saturday April 15, 4:00 to 6:00 pm ET

Created by the national project, Toward Right Relationship with Native Peoples (TRR), this interactive workshop will help us to:

  • Learn the real history of our country through the voices of Native peoples, European colonists, and historians
  • Understand why this history matters to all Americans today
  • Interact and experience this history as you never have before
  • Learn to respect Native Americans’ rights, culture, and presence

Registration is limited to 60 participants, on a sliding scale from $20 to $50, minimum $5.  Please register at:

Please also let Rev. Claudia Jiménez know if you have registered for one of these sessions so we can plan a follow up conversation with the Black Mountain UU congregation.
