NAIITS is a non-sectarian organization dedicated to encouraging the Native North American community to develop and to articulate Native North American perspectives on theology and practice. We encourage the development and implementation of Native North American learning styles and world views through encouraging the development of a body of written work that addresses biblical, theological, and ethical issues from Native North American perspectives in concert with those of other ethnicities who would speak into this context.

We seek to facilitate the creation of a written theological foundation for a) the visioning of new paradigms to reach Native North Americans and other Indigenous peoples with the Good News of Jesus; and, b) the contextualization of the Good News in Native communities. We seek to develop theological partnerships with other cultural communities of faith which will ensure the voice of Jesus is heard in all ways and will ensure biblical orthodoxy in all things. NAIITS is dedicated to genuine dialogue with the historical traditions of Christianity and values the written and living resources encompassed in these traditions.

Just when you wonder, "Are we making a difference?" God sends someone along who has been impacted by the work that we do to let us know, "Yes, you are making a difference."

iEmergence is a non-profit/non-stock organization focusing on holistic community and leadership development in indigenous and tribal communities. We are a catalyst for building pathways for indigenous youth, young adults, their families and communities to engage in culturally appropriate holistic transformational development while training the next generation leaders to rediscover their Creator-given identity and purpose.

The time had come for Indigenous youth to ask, “What is it that we want to contribute to this growing global Indigenous community, and how are we to support each other in understanding our Creator-given identity and purpose? ...we as the next generations have a unique role and understanding on how to see our culture expressed in a modern context without losing the values and worldview of our ancestors. It is a flow between the generations. As an organization, iEmergence hopes to model this idea.

My People International (MPI) is a faith-based organization focused on developing the full capacity of Native North Americans. Though predominantly comprised of Native people, the staff and board of MPI reflect a strong commitment to Native leadership development in an intercultural setting.

MPI was initiated in response to the need for a more effective paradigm of working within the Native North American community - many decades of work in traditional ministry had left a large, untouched Native community; many who had set out in a good way struggled to grow and become healthy.

If we are going to share the good news of the Gospel in a way that calls for transformation it must go to the deepest level, the heart language of the people. First Nations people long for freedom from the legacy of residential schools, freedom from the legacy of broken homes, freedom from the legacy of oppression... My People is empowering schools, churches, and individuals to create space for the Indigenous people of Canada and the United States to be who God made them to be.
Ray Aldred, Director - My People International
