Indigenous Pathways is a community of organizations with unique identities and skills that have chosen to live together within one corporate legal entity in order to more effectively work alongside Indigenous people around the world. At present, there are three members of the Indigenous Pathways family: NAIITS, iEmergence and My People. Visit the official website of Indigenous Pathways here.
NAIITS, is one of three divisions of Indigenous Pathways, a non-sectarian organization dedicated to working together with the Indigenous community to develop and articulate Indigenous perspectives in theology and practice. We encourage Indigenous learning styles and world views in our instruction as we facilitate the development of a body of written work addressing biblical, theological, and ethical issues from within Native North American and other Indigenous perspectives. We do so in concert with partners of other ethnicities who would speak into this context. NAIITS currently has five degree program partnerships offering BA, MA and Ph.D programs.
My People (MP), one of three divisions of Indigenous Pathways, a non-sectarian organization dedicated to working together with the Indigenous community in the development of the full leadership capacity of Native North Americans and other Indigenous peoples. Staff and volunteers focus their efforts on trauma healing workshops, community-based work, and capacity-building workshops and conferences with Indigenous and non-Indigenous people. Predominantly comprised of Indigenous people, staff and volunteers reflect a strong commitment to Indigenous leadership development in an intercultural setting.
Wiconi pronounced “We-cho-nee" is a Lakota/Sioux word meaning "Life."
