RE-thinking Columbus Day

All Religious Education programs meet tomorrow.

Our theme for grades 1-5 thru is Native Wisdom. We will start in children's chapel. The children will learn a song we will sing next Sunday in worship. They will also learn some words of the Mohawk language and Native American social dancing. Children should come should come prepared to go outside.

Please check out the Waters House library for a special section on Indigenous Peoples. There you will find books for all ages, information, and a brochure, REthinking Columbus Day and Thanksgiving. Since at least 1970 the Unitarian Universalist Association has been involved in supporting and promoting Indigenous Rights. There is much we can learn just in our own geographical region.
