At head of title: Sunderland P. Gardner Lecture 2001.
Includes bibliographical references.
"I invite you to consider a number of things. I would like you to think about our relationship to land, and how that relationship does and does not mirror the relationship of Indigenous Peoples to land. I would like you to consider the testimony and witness of early Friends regarding Aboriginal Peoples and our relationship to them and their lands. I would also like you to reflect on the meaning of treaties, both to early Friends and to ourselves today. I would like you to reflect on the relationship between law and politics and consider what our own witness should be in this regard. Finally, I would like you to look at our relationship with Aboriginal Peoples today. What is it ? What might it be ? What prevents it from being all that it might be ?" -- About this pamphlet, p. 6.
