“Land and Place: Indigenous Perspectives In an Era of Displacement”
NAIITS Symposium 2019 is co-hosted by Tyndale Seminary from June 6 - 8, 2019.
The purpose of the symposium is to facilitate open dialogue about various aspects of biblical and theological contextualization in Indigenous thought, history, and experience. Our focus will be on overall health and well being of human beings with one another, the land, politics, and the rest of the creation of which we are a part. Of particular interest will be those topics and presentations that describe a holistic and corrective approach to dealing with justice framed within the need for relationship with land and place for people of all walks of life.
Of interest will be how the interplay of theology and practice from Indigenous perspective, might transform our understanding of the human community environment, the practical issues of social context, and relationships with the living creation of which humanity is a part.
