The Conquering Columbus webinar will describe the theory and historic process of the Doctrine of Discovery and consider how it instituted long-term negative impacts on Indigenous people. Our panel of experts — Sarah Augustine, Douglas Lind, Bob Miller, with moderator Torey Dolan — will discuss how the doctrine rationalized the taking of Indigenous lands, exploited Indigenous peoples, and devastated their cultures.


An exhibition devoted to the Confluence Project and Maya Lin will take place at Whitman College’s Maxey Museum. Runs April 30 – December 15, 2021.
