We can began our discussion of righting wrongs for a 'just reconcillation' in reference to "the Doctrine of Discovery", originally, "Doctrine of Christian Discovery", by petitioning the reigning pope and or the papal representatives to revoke Pope Alexander VI, of 1493, Papal Bull called "Inter Cetera" l (official decrees of the pope), that sanctioned Christian claims to superiority (exploration, capture, vanquish, subdue, slavery, genocide, take all possessions and real property) over non-Christians (American Indians) encountered in American. As history reveals, in hindsight, we know that the Indian Nations of Turtle Island were never non-christians, but believers of the Great Spirit. The similarties of the European christians belief are so similar to the American Indian Nations which was revealed, once a form of communication was established. (U.S. Constitution's 1st Amendment is Freedom of Religion.) It is not too late for our people and land to heal, but only by addressing, correcting and revoking the unjust deeds done to the Indian Nations (American Indians) in the 1400's by the passage of the official decrees of the pope.
