Sheldon Wolfchild, the filmmaker who created the documentary: The Doctrine of Discovery: Unmasking the Domination Code, will be speaking at the Pond House in Bloomington this Sunday at 2 p.m. He will show excerpts of the documentary and have DVDs for sale. Healing Minnesota Stories has partnered with Wolfchild on several events, showing the film and hosting post-film dialogues. The documentary has been very well received and tells an important part of our history that does not get taught in schools.
The historic Pond House is located in Pond Dakota Mission Park, 401 East 104th St., Bloomington, between Portland and Nicollet avenues. (For more information call Jay Ludwig at 952-484-0477 or visit www.BloomingtonMN.go.)
Wolfchild, president of 38 Plus 2 Productions, also will speak about his great, great, grandfather, Medicine Bottle – his capture, trial, and hanging after the war of 1862. A donation of $2 is suggested; youth through high school and PDHS members are welcome to attend for free.
Wolfchild is planning an official premier of the documentary on Friday, Sept. 4, at 7:30 p.m. at the Parkway Theater, 4814 Chicago Avenue in Minneapolis. Wolfchild co-produced the documentary with Steve Newcom, author of Pagans in the Promised Land.
