The Doctrine of Recovery

The Doctrine of Recovery

"The Doctrine of Recovery"
When: October 10, Indigenous Peoples' Day, from 6-9pm
Where: The Merc Playhouse in Twisp


The Methow Conservancy, the Methow Valley Interpretive Center, Methow Valley Citizens Council, and Room One are partnering to present "The Doctrine of Recovery," a film about the so-called “Doctrine of Discovery” that was used by European colonizers as justification for the dispossession and decimation of the Indigenous populations of North America.

The event will open with a Native prayer, include a short trailer from the Methow Valley Citizens Council’s “Living River” film series, followed by the 75-minute “Doctrine of Recovery” and a panel discussion.

Admission is by donation: $10 is suggested. Proceeds will benefit regional Indigenous-led nonprofit organizations.
