Challenging Ideas

How do we challenge the ideas that people are set in?

How do I teach others something that may go against what they know? Specifically: when visitors come with preconceived prejudices or biased views regarding Indigenous people. Mt thoughts on solution: calling people racist, telling them straight-up they are wrong, saying what they should believe instead = doesn't work! Makes people very defensive....We must educate. We must have people come to their own conclusions."You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink."Show people what is correct. Guide them to "truth", have them come to own conclusions. Hope in this way, people will see past prejudice and racism...
