Worship: Restorative Justice: A Lost Example in Early America, by Richard Field
March 19 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
With the cry “My friends have killed me,” the Seneca Warrior and hunter Sawantaney initiates the little known story of the “Great Treaty of Albany of 1722.” In this historic episode of early American history the remarkably “not savage” Indian peoples of what are now the states of New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia sought to teach the European settlers encroaching on their lands how to build harmonious and peaceful infra-communal and inter-cultural relationships. Today we may be more ready to listen to their teaching on criminal justice and community building.
