Healing Racism Through Faith

Preserving hope in the face of racism has been both challenging and elusive for Native Americans due to historical trauma from government policies of genocide, annihilation, termination, and relocation — yet this is precisely the message that Fr. Maurice Henry Sands brings to Native American communities across the country. Fr. Sands is the Executive Director of the Black and Indian Mission Office in Washington, D.C., a priest of the Archdiocese of Detroit, and a member of the Ojibway, Ottawa and Potawatomi tribes, who are known together as Anishnaabe. He delivered this year’s annual Rev. Bernie Clark, C.S.C. Lecture on Catholic Social Tradition, titled “Act Justly: Healing Racism through Faith.” He joined us on the podcast to discuss racism against Native Americans from historical, personal, and theological perspectives.
