CONTENT
About: In describing a personal journey of engagement with Indigenous peoples, the author emphasizes the importance of learning, listening, and personal transformation, as well as the potentialities of the Bahá’í community’s current series of global plans. These plans seek to build capacity in every human group to arise and contribute to the advancement of civilization. The methods and approaches of the plans also have potential to “disable every instrument devised by humanity over the long period of its childhood for one group to oppress another” (The Universal House of Justice, 28 December 2010).
