Bartimaeus Kinsler Institute 2020 | February 17–21, 2020
Unsettling Histories | Decolonizing Discipleship | hukišunuškuy
Forest Home Camp, Oak View, CA
Register now through January 29, 2020 for this year’s Bartimaeus Kinsler Institute (BKI) hosted by Bartimaeus Cooperative Ministries. This year’s BKI builds on last year’s theme (although you don’t need to have gone to the Institute last year to gain much from this year’s experience). The gathering will focus on:
- Unsettling Histories: Cohorts will focus on the personal and political work required of settlers and immigrants.
- Decolonizing Discipleship: We will imagine and strategize how, as persons and communities of faith, to embody more meaningful practices.
- Hukišunuškuy: (pronounced hu-kee-shoon-óosh-kooy): A mitsqanaqan (Ventureño Chumash) phrase introduced to us by local Chumash scholar activist Matthew Vestuto that connotes a different kind of settling: “A promise to vision together.” Guest Indigenous leaders will serve as interlocutors through the process, encouraging us to become reliable “Treaty People” and to work together toward justice and a decolonized future.
