Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz's An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States, from Beacon Press, is the first history of the United States told from the perspective of indigenous peoples. Available in its original version and a version for older children/youth, this book offers US-based UUs an opportunity to grapple with their country's history and their own histories, and opens pathways to understanding how settler-colonialism is embedded in Unitarian Universalist history and culture.
The Discussion Guide for An Indigenous Peoples' History (PDF, 37 pages), by religious educator Gail Forsyth-Vail, can be used for UU discussions about the adult or children/youth versions of the book. The guide offers sessions that can last 45 or 90 minutes, with enough content for a maximum of three 90-minute (or six 45-minute) sessions.
