This booklet is a compilation of stories from across the Mennonite church in the US and Canada that offer “next steps” of reparative justice in response to the Doctrine of Discovery, from returning land to Indigenous communities, to including restitution funds in church budgets, to supporting Indigenous struggles to protect lands and waters. “Stories of Repair” also includes theological and biblical reflections with questions for congregational study.

Check out this video from the editors about the resource and our process. As a team of white settlers, it was important that we sought feedback from Indigenous advisors and compensated them for their time. We encourage your feedback and stories of how this resource impacted you and your community. Please reach out to us at mennosdismantlingthedofd [AT] gmail.com.
