For this short paper, write a summary of what you have learned from our readings about residential (boarding) schools, violence, and Christianity. Make specific reference to facts.
I had learned previously about the residential school violence when i took a native studies class in high school.
Was shocked that the woman in the article was still able to hold onto her faith, since she as an indigenous woman had been persecuted by christians.
Was the desecration of native populations really God’s plan? Or have colonizers turned it into a way to justify their actions.
How can you hold onto a faith that has continually been used to hurt you and the members of the community?’
As a lesbian i have not recieved the same level of persecution in the eyes of the church, but i find it so perplexing that anyone who has been under the churchs knife can still identify as a christian.
I think the reason i was drawn to this course was to learn how people can still believe in something that doesnt believe in them.
Why after all the violence do people still find love?
Any time i have been to church, ive only ever seen people praising and justifying their own violent actions, not condemning them.
