The co-moderators of Center for Indigenous Ministries, Elder Crow Eddy and Lisa Barnett Ph.D., join Rev. Dr. Laurie Pound-Feille in conversation about covenant. An important conversation in our era when Disciples of Christ struggle to provide institutional equity to Indigenous communities. What might be fairly said is since Disciples institutional inception in 1830, it has continually held the Indigenous voice at arm’s length and at its best has done little more than engaged in ministry to—to assimilate and accept a settler-identity—rather than ministry with. Listen for the questions of: What does covenant mean to an Indigenous relationship. Has there ever been covenant? Has covenant and relationship been broken? Is covenant between Indigenous communities and Disciples possible?
