In 1986 three Lakota men decided they would ride their horses on the same path Chief Big Foot and his 350 followers took when they road from the Cheyenne River Reservation in the bitter winter of December 1890 to seek the protection of Chief Red Cloud on the Pine Ridge Agency.

Contemporary churches of different ethnic and racial makeups still teach and preach a whitewashed Christianity-one that is invested in maintaining institutional racism.

October 21, 2018 | If you visit a church and see the image of White Jesus, it is most likely symbolic of the whitewashed Christianity you have on your hands. If you choose to run like mad before church service begins, I can’t blame you.

A church building might not display pictures of White Jesus, but He might be “hidden in their hearts.”

October 05, 2018 | Who are the children whose terrified faces we have seen in images from our southern border as they were literally torn from their mother’s arms? They were, yes, Mexican and Salvadoran, Guatemalan and Honduran. But whose were they also and truly?

In the days after World Refugee Day this year, Jesuit Refugee Service/USA was clear about its care. We urged the U.S. government to ensure that people are not criminally punished for trying to seek asylum and that the rights and dignity of children and families entering the United States are respected. We affirmed that U.S. policies calling for the indefinite detention of families seeking asylum are contrary to Catholic teaching and violate the rights of asylum seekers and the dignity of children and their families. They also put at risk the long-term mental health and well-being of children and their parents.

These bits of fractured history are examples to me of the fact that what we accomplish is the result of not just what one or two persons do but rather the result of community action through time.

For a general account of how the trial went, please see the thorough account based upon the trial notes of Jo Schubert, and nicely written up by Sue Ann Martinson in Rise Up Times.

Note: As we were preparing to publish these reflections on our trial, news broke on August1, 2018, that the City of St. Paul has dismissed charges facing 17 protesters who were arrested near the Minnesota Governor’s Mansion in St. Paul in July 2016. We understand the news to mean that all of the remaining charges against all of the remaining defendants from the governor’s mansion arrests of July 2016 have been dropped. City Attorney, Lindsey Olson, made the announcement.

Roger Cuthbertson was arrested for protesting the killing of Philando Castile by police officer Jeronimo Yanez. These are his reflections on the trial andNot Guilty verdict on June 14, 2018 in Ramsey County Court, Minnesota.
