“We-cho-nee" Lakota/Sioux language meaning "Life"

Our aim is to provide education, encouragement and offer practical support to Native American families and communities in creating a preferred future. Historically, Native people have been underrepresented and underserved in mainstream America. Economic, cultural and social barriers continually limit access to viable resources, thus hindering many healthy community change efforts. Wiconi’s primary mission is to empower and serve Native people to experience a desired quality of life and a hope-filled future through authentic relationships and culturally supportive programs. We seek to live and walk among all people in a good way, as we follow the ways of Jesus-- affirming, respecting and embracing the God-given cultural realities of Native American and Indigenous people, not rejecting or demonizing these sacred cultural ways.

NAIITS “Down Under” and Whitley College

We are thrilled to announce our newest partnership with the Australian Indigenous community, and Whitley College at the University of Melbourne, to deliver a Masters In Theological Studies Indigenous and to begin to offer an Indigenous PhD program supervised in partnership with NAIITS.

The mission of Whitley College is to equip men and women for leadership and service in the church and society. We have adopted the tag line: ‘Equipping leaders for a different world’.
Our vision is for each person to make a contribution, within the College and in their life beyond university studies, towards a different world—and whilst on this journey, form lasting friendships and make the most of every opportunity.
The Baptist heritage of Whitley College stresses the integrity and freedom of each person, a respect for all and a challenge to all to contribute to a just, peaceful society. Baptist faith emphasises a personal response to God, as we understand the expression of God in Jesus Christ and in the witness of the Bible. While Baptists hold to this personal faith, they also uphold the religious freedom of all and seek to a respectful relationship with people of all faiths and of none.
