For example, the CJCLDS teaches that nearly all Indigenous peoples of this land are descendants of a cursed people and they want to convert them so that they may become "white and delightsome" again. With that in mind, is there any reason to look any further into this mythology? Is it possible to separate this specific baby from its bathwater?
