Pagans in the Promised Land

The school was located in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and consisted of a predominantly Pueblo student population. During various times throughout the school year our Pueblo brothers and sisters would go to their home communities to participate in ceremonial life.

This left the school sparsely occupied by those few of us who were not from the pueblos. In observation of these recurring events, my non-Pueblo friends and I renamed ourselves the Pagans, having learned the term from reading the Old Testament in theology class.

While we knew the true pagans in the promised land of the term, we re-created it to amuse ourselves and to poke fun at pagans in the promised land curriculum. I gather the same sense of the Indigenous will to play into the imagination of a powerful institution.

T he doctrine of discovery is now a well-established and intrinsic part of U. American Indian nations were rightfully free and independent when they made treaties with the United States.

Pagans in the Promised Land: Decoding the Doctrine of Christian Discovery by Steven T. Newcomb

And pagans in the promised land according to the international law of Christendom, a smaller nation could accept the protection of a more powerful nation without losing its independence. In keeping with the perspective, Indian nations that accepted the protection of the United States are entitled to pagans in the promised land their free and independent existence, with full territorial integrity.

Yet despite the well-understood norm in federal Indian law that an Indian treaty is to be interpreted liberally in favor of the Indians and as the Indians would have understood the terms of the treaty at the time it was negotiated and signed, the United States has tacitly interpreted all Indian treaties within the context of the doctrine of discovery and the Johnson ruling.
