on the Impact of the Doctrine of Discovery
to Address Violations of
Human Rights - Indigenous Rights - Rights of Mother Earth
We call for this process to continue and prevail in the Spirit of Truth over the distortions of doctrine, not for merely for the purpose of redress of past violations but to actually engage in collective corrective action in order to move forward with Self Determination towards our common destiny as Humanity and in maturity as Children of the Nations and Pueblos of Mother Earth.
“In light of the fact that there is absolutely NO REFERENCE in the current Arizona State Curriculum Standards for a track of study on the relevance of the Doctrine of Discovery in terms of Social Studies, History or Public Policy:
We demand that the Preliminary Study on the Doctrine of Discovery, submitted to the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues be integrated into the Social Studies Curriculum standards immediately for implementation across the spectrum of services delivered by the Arizona Department of Education at all levels across the state with no exceptions."
One part of the task at hand is to disseminate the UNPFII Preliminary Report on the Impact of the Doctrine of Discovery in the Spanish language for comment and evaluation by the Indigenous Movement in Mexico, an assignment that Virginia Flores Flores has assumed with the support of the Nahuacalli.
