Dismantling the Doctrine of Discovery Today

2021, 1:31:35 min
CommonWord is shocked and saddened by Mark MacDonald's acknowledged ministerial sexual misconduct, which came to our attention on June 24, 2022. We unreservedly condemn his actions, and stand in solidarity with all victims of sexual violence.

We have determined to remove Mark's materials from our collection. We do so to signal our condemnation of his actions; to acknowledge the raw wounds that his choices open in the lives of victims of sexual violence; and our need for patient, ongoing reflection in life situations imbued with dissonant complexity. We view this choice as a necessary, provisional time of lament as we acknowledge this brokenness.



Mennonite Church Canada Indigenous-Settler Relations and the Dismantling the Doctrine of Discover Coalition host an online conversation with Mennonite author-activist Sarah Augustine and National Anglican Indigenous Archbishop Mark MacDonald on the present-day impacts of the Doctrine of Discovery on Indigenous communities and how the Church can begin to dismantle harm caused by this guiding colonial policy.
