Grandmother Beatrice Long Visitor Holy Dance on Papal Bulls

A copy of handwritten letter dated March 2009, an appeal to Pope Benedict XVI, from Grandmother Beatrice Long-Visitor Holy Dance, Oglala Lakota Nation regarding the three Papal Bulls which are the foundation of the “Doctrine of Conquest” or “Doctrine of Discovery” made me want to circulate the information in it, and possibly inspire further inquiry and advocacy. 

It had been sent from Grandmother Beatrice (now deceased) to Anele Heiges, O.P., who was then the president of the International Policy Institute, a UN NGO. Anele Heiges is a Dominican sister, and a supporter of the Millionth Circle and 5WCW at the UN
Grandmother Beatrice was one of the International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers assembled in 2004) The Council went to the Vatican in July 2008, prayed and did ceremony, and requested a meeting with the Pope, which was declined. In 2013, Pope Francis (named after Francis of Assisi) born in Argentina in 1936, became the first Pope from the Americas. 
Grandmother LVHD wrote: “Unfortunately, relationships between nation-states and tribal peoples in the Americas, Africa, and Oceania rests on the the doctrines that can be traced directly to three papal bulls: Dum Diversas (June 18, 1452). Romanus Pontifex, January 8, 1455. and Inter Castera, May 4, 1493. These papal bulls gave dominion to Europeans over lands that our tribal nations have occupied for thousands of years, and the outright  theft of entire continents from our indigenous people worldwide. It has been over 500 years since these papal bulls were written, yet they remain the spiritual, legal, and moral foundation for exercising jurisdiction over tribal people by nation states today."
Grandmother Long asked Pope Benedict “to remove these Papal Bulls. An act like this would create a global healing of all the injustices suffered by indigenous people . . .and could also bring healing to those who committed these injustices.” (there is a mystical sense of healing all generations, past as well as present and future). 

In March 2023, (seven years to the month of the transitioning of Grandmother Beatrice) the Vatican officially repudiated the Doctrine of Discovery. In a statement,5 the Vatican admitted that the papal bulls on which the doctrine is based “did not adequately reflect the equal dignity and rights of indigenous peoples.” The statement denied that the Doctrine of Discovery was a teaching of the Catholic Church and claimed that these documents had been “manipulated for political purposes” by colonial empires to justify their treatment of Indigenous people. The Vatican also acknowledged the importance of Indigenous voices in addressing the Doctrine of Discovery.

The Vatican statement on the Doctrine of Discovery was generally received as a positive first step by some Indigenous groups and representatives. However, many pointed out that the statement stopped short of rescinding the papal bulls – Dum Diversas (1452), Romanus Pontifex (1455) and Inter Caetera (1493) – on which the doctrine is based.

What does the Vatican’s statement mean in the Canadian context? Tamara Baldhead Pearl, who is from One Arrow First Nation and an assistant professor of law at the University of Alberta, believes the repudiation of the doctrine may not lead to significant changes to Canadian law. “But,” she says “it will have a significant impact on those who make changes in the law, so that we distance ourselves from the Doctrine of Discovery and use the treaties [and] the nation‐to‐nation relationship that we had, as confirmed by the Royal Proclamation of 1763, as the foundation of our relationship here in Canada.”
