INDIGENOUS METHODOLOGY: From Doctrine to Decolonization - Elements of Process


DISMANTLING the DOCTRINE of DISCOVERY
Elements of Process
1.) Information: Search, Research, Intake, Absorb, Share.

2.) Consciousness: Develop a personal critical consciousness on the issues which are pervaded by the institutionalization of the Doctrine of Discovery from the local-regional, continental-global context.

3.) Reveal: Create a shared community understanding on how the dehumanizing principles of the Doctrine of Discovery are relevant today and continue to provide the cultural framework for the ongoing colonization and genocide of the Original Nations of this continent, the Great Turtle Island Abya Yala.

4.) Take a position. Denounce and repudiate the Doctrine of Discovery and the underlying pathological schema of DOMINATION.

5.) DISMANTLE: Take action, and follow through with inter-generational decolonization
strategies.

UN Preliminary Study on the Doctrine of Discovery
"This preliminary study establishes that the Doctrine of Discovery has been institutionalized in law and policy, on national and international levels, and lies at the root of the violations of indigenous peoples’ human rights, both individual and collective. This has resulted in State claims to and the mass appropriation of the lands, territories and resources of indigenous peoples. Both the Doctrine of Discovery and a holistic structure that we term the Framework of Dominance have resulted in centuries of virtually unlimited resource extraction from the traditional territories of indigenous peoples. This, in turn, has resulted in the dispossession and impoverishment of indigenous peoples, and the host of problems that they face today on a daily basis."
