2020 marks the 400th anniversary of the much-mythologized encounter at Plymouth between colonists and those native to the land. The Virtual UUA General Assembly 2020, will speak to the truths that contradict the mythology. At the same time, movements in response to global and local environmental emergencies, many involving UUs, are increasingly recognizing the connection between Indigenous rights and climate justice. This Common Read invites UU congregations, communities, and individuals to learn the story of trauma and resilience that is the Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States.
