Moyers & Company [electronic resource]: American Indians Confront "Savage Anxieties"

In this edition of Moyers & Company, Bill speaks with Robert A. Williams Jr., a professor specializing in American Indian law, about American Indian's tragic history of dispossession. Williams says stereotypes about American Indians have been codified into laws and government policies, with devastating consequences. Williams, who is of Lumbee Indian heritage, says, "very much like African-Americans, the history of America is taking away resources, whether labor or land, from one racial group to give them to the dominate racial group".

The Doctrine of Discovery: Unmasking the Domination Code

Loading...
"Based on two decades of research by Shawnee, Lenape scholar Steven T. Newcomb, this film tells the story of how little known Vatican documents of the fifteenth century resulted in a tragic global momentum of domination and dehumanization. This led to law systems in the United States and Canada and elsewhere in the world, that are still being used against Original Nations and Peoples to this day. The film concludes with traditional teachings developed over thousands of years that provide a much needed alternative for humans and the ecological systems of Mother Earth at this time."--IMDb.
