The Toronto School of Theology (TST) is excited to welcome NAIITS: An Indigenous Learning Community (NAIITS) as an affiliated member institution of TST. NAIITS is one of the founding members of a family of Indigenous organizations, collectively known as Indigenous Pathways Inc., dedicated to the advancement of Indigenous people.
The general aims of NAIITS, which include theological teaching and scholarship, and the support of training for Christian ministries, are in harmony with those of TST. In addition, NAIITS brings to its ministry of theological education a grounding in the cultural identities, spiritualities, ways of knowing, and wisdom of Indigenous peoples in Canada and globally with which TST wishes to interact. NAIITS is also dedicated to introducing change into the education and practice of Christian mission and theology and recognizes an affiliation with TST as a potentially fruitful place to further that goal.
