The Doctrine of Discovery: Unmasking The Domination Code



The film tells the story of how a little-known Vatican documents of the fifteenth century resulted in a tragic global momentum of domination
​ ​
and dehumanization. This led to law systems in the United States and Canada and elsewhere in the world that are still being used against 
Original Nations and Peoples to this day.
The Supreme Court's distinction between "Christian people" and heathens" in Johnson v M'Intosh (1823) is still  treated as valid law 
​​
for the United States in 2015.
Cristobal Colon (Columbus) and other colonizers laid claim to the lands of original nations on the basis of the idea that Christians had a
biblical right to discover and dominate non-Christian lands. This doctrine of ancient Christendom, supported by papal edicts, continues to
serve as the conceptual foundaytion of the political and legal system of the United States, and as the conceptual foundation of
​ ​
other dominating political systems elsewhere in the world in relation to original nations.
A story of historical truth, spirituality and resistance, told on behalf of the original nations and peoples of Great Turtle Island, and elsewhere on Mother Earth. 
We are still here, and still rightfully free.

Dakota filmmaker Sheldon Wolfchild's compelling documentary is based on the book Pagans in the Promised Land: Decoding the Doctrine of 
Christian Discovery, by Shawnee, Lenape scholar Steven T. Newcomb.
Narration by Buffy Sainte-Marie

This powerful and landmark documentary "The Doctrine of Discovery: Unmasking The Domination Code" is a result of the collaborative efforts by Dakota filmmaker and Director Sheldon Wolfchild and Co-Producer Steven Newcomb (Shawnee, Lenape).
