A White settler colonist and Indigenous people’s day | Quakers, social justice and revolution

Settler colonialism is a form of colonialism that seeks to replace[1] the original population of the colonized territory with a new society of settlers.[citation needed] As with all forms of colonialism, it is based on exogenous domination, typically organized or supported by an imperial authority.[2] Settler colonialism is enacted by a variety of means ranging from violent depopulation of the previous inhabitants to more subtle, legal means such as assimilation or recognition of indigenous identity within a colonial framework.[3]

Decolonizing is, of course, the opposite of colonizing. We, as White people, need to be open to, to search for help to decolonize ourselves. The process of decolonizing involves education and healing.

Two resources to help us do so are Decolonizing Quakershttps://www.decolonizingquakers.org/

and Toward Right Relationship with Native Peopleshttps://friendspeaceteams.org/announcing-trr/
