UPCOMING: Winter Talks Jan. 25-27 in Tulsa

Winter Talk honors the season of winter. The harvest is long past and spring soon to come. Winter is a time to think, tell stories, and eat. Winter Talk is a moment to come together as community and talk, eat, create new relationships, and then talk some more, eat some more, and come to know our new relations.

The event is a three day conversation on the Christian Doctrine of Discovery (DOD) and its influence on Christian theology and polity, with an emphasis on the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) relationship with Indigenous tribes and peoples. Hosted by Landscape Mending and Philips Theological Seminary, Winter Talk is dedicated to furthering the conversation on the Christian Doctrine of Discovery and its dismantling.

The keynote speaker for 2016 is Robert J. Miller of the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at Arizona State University. His published works include articles, books and book chapters on a wide array of federal Indian law issues and civil procedure, and he speaks regularly on Indian law issues across the U.S. and in other countries.He is the author of Native America, Discovered and Conquered: Thomas Jefferson, Lewis and Clark, and Manifest Destiny (2006), and Reservation "Capitalism:" Economic Development in Indian Country (2012), and he co-authored Discovering Indigenous Lands: The Doctrine of Discovery in the English Colonies (Oxford University Press 2010).
