ABOUT THE COURSE

Through social analysis, communal narratives, historical literacy and biblical reflection, this course will tackle the oldest and deepest injustices on the North American continent, which inhabit every intersection of settler and Indigenous worlds past and present. We will explore the places, peoples and spirits that have formed (and deformed) us in order to build capacity for personal and political Restorative Solidarity with our Indigenous neighbors.

All participants—white settlers, settlers of color, new immigrants, Indigenous and international students—will adapt our Landlines-Bloodlines-Songlines (LBS) model to their particular context. This class is not for spectating or merely informational; it is a practical workshop for each participant to do their own LBS research and engagement, sharing findings and exploring next steps for their discipleship of decolonization. Students commit to the required reading, research and homework, and to offering accountability and encouragement to each other. Please go here for more information on Healing Haunted Histories.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR

Elaine Enns has worked in the field of restorative justice since 1989, first focusing on victim-offender dialogue work in the Criminal Justice System, and more recently looking at how restorative justice applies to historical violations, including issues of intergenerational trauma and healing. She holds a Doctor of Ministry, and leads workshops throughout North America on restorative solidarity and discipleship practices of decolonization. She has published over a dozen articles, and coauthored with her partner, activist theologian Ched Myers:

  • Healing Haunted Histories: A Settler Discipleship of Decolonization (Cascade, 2021);
  • the two-volume Ambassadors of Reconciliation: New Testament Reflections on Restorative Justice and Peacemaking and Ambassadors of Reconciliation: Diverse Christian Practices of Restorative Justice and Peacemaking (Orbis Books, 2009).

An ecumenical Mennonite, Elaine was born and raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and lives in southern California where she co-directs Bartimaeus Cooperative Ministries (www.bcm-net.org) on traditional Chumash land.
