Come late September the Shuswap Nation Tribal Council will be holding a two day conference on the ‘Doctrine of Discovery‘. For those who have not heard of this doctrine it was a Papal Bull that gave legality to the genocide and theft that was about to come to the world once Columbus got lost trying to find India by sailing east from Europe.
This doctrine did not stay within the Roman Catholic church. There are many areas in the American legal system that are directly based upon this doctrine. Canadian mining corporations are using this doctrine around the world. Enbridge and the Canadian government are using parts of this doctrine to attempt to push through the Northern Gateway Pipeline.
