Events for September 9, 2019 x
Sustainability Perspectives: Daniel Rinn
Sep 9 @ 12:15pm

"What is a Waterway, Anyway?"
Daniel Rinn, Ph.D. candidate, Department of History, University of Rochester
Monday, Sept. 9, 2019
12:15 p.m.
de Witt Lecture Hall (Zabriskie Hall 106)

Daniel Rinn will ask his audience to reflect on the terms we use to describe our environment. By looking at a handful of historic "waterways" in New York, the division between "natural" and "unnatural" is not as easy to draw as one might initially think. A waterway is more than a means of transporting goods or people; waterways can transport ideas and culture as well. Integrating video clips, music, and visual art, Mr. Rinn will illustrate the reciprocal relationship between waterways and human culture.

Mr. Rinn's appearance is made possible with support from the Museum Association of New York (MANY), in conjunction with the Smithsonian Institution's "Water/Ways" traveling exhibit, on display at Wells College through Sept. 29.

Talk by Steven Newcomb: "The Doctrine of Discovery"
Sep 10 @ 12:30pm

Steven T. Newcomb, an author and legal scholar of Native American descent (Lenape, Shawnee) will appear Tuesday, Sept. 10 at Wells College to speak on the topic, "The Doctrine of Discovery."

Newcomb will also speak at numerous other nearby colleges and institutions between Sept. 5 and Sept. 13; for a full list, please click here to download the promotional poster.

Steven T. Newcomb is an author and legal scholar. For more than four decades he has been researching and writing about the origins of federal Indian law and international law dating back to the early days of Western Christendom, most notably focused on what he calls the doctrine of Christian discovery and domination.

He is one of the foremost authorities on the Vatican papal decrees of the 15th century and their destructive impact on the Original Nations and Peoples of the planet. As he puts it, "the idea-system of domination found in Roman Catholic Church documents have resulted in the decimation of Original Nations and Peoples of Mother Earth, destroyed sacred life-ways and sustainable ecosystems, and deprived humanity of vitally important Teachings and Wisdom."

Newcomb is author of "Pagans in the Promised Land: Decoding the Doctrine of Christian Discovery" (Fulcrum Publishing, 2008) and co-producer of the 2015 documentary film, "The Doctrine of Discovery: Unmasking the Domination Code," which was directed and produced by Sheldon Wolfchild (Dakota).
