Read “What shall we do with the Canaanites?” by Knut Holter
attached in files
Read “Return the National Parks to the Tribes” by Daniel Treuer
Write an integrative paper describing the different policies identified by Holter that are articulated in the Old Testament about how to treat the ongoing presence of the Canaanites in the land. How have/ how might each of these policies find parallels in relation to US government’s policies toward Native American presence in the land of North America as discussed in the article by Treuer?
As you think through your response here are some additional questions to consider:
Do you think that certain Old Testament policies regarding how Israel was supposed to treat the Canaanites in the land have influenced the behavior of European settlers or the policy of the US government toward Native Americans? Why or why not?
Which OT policies toward the Canaanites are similar to practices and policies adopted by the US government and/or by European settlers? Give evidence.
How might a discussion of these different Old Testament policies about what to do with the Canaanites presence in the land in the Old Testament contribute to a more robust discussion in American society regarding Treuer’s policy suggestion for returning the national parks to Native American peoples? How might such a discussion contribute or not contribute to inclusive human flourishing?
