GA Repudiates Doctrine of Discovery

The Doctrine of Discovery (English)
Sobre la Doctrina del Descubrimento 
2012 Responsive Resolution

We, the delegates of the 2012 General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association, repudiate the Doctrine of Discovery as a relic of colonialism, feudalism, and religious, cultural, and racial biases having no place in the modern day treatment of indigenous peoples; and . . .

That we call upon the United States to fully implement the standards of the U.N. Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples in the U.S. law and policy without qualifications.
