NAIITS’ academic degrees offer open-ended opportunities for First Nations, Metis, Inuit and others of Indigenous ancestry to be part of a flexible program of learning.
NAIITS symposiums are themselves learning communities, unique in their blend of academic and practitioner teaching.
Providing resources to the members of our learning community for personal and community growth is the goal of the NAIITS store.
NAIITS has carefully selected partners who are clearly Jesus-focused in their worldview and mission, and who respect Indigenous leadership.
We invite you to participate with Indigenous leaders from around the world and become part of a diverse group of highly dedicated visionaries.
Our Tribute and Thanks
Following an extended struggle with cancer, Cornelius Buller, our good friend, colleague, and the sole non-Indigenous cofounder of NAIITS: An Indigenous Learning Community, journeyed from this side of life to the next. Early Sunday morning July 19, Cornelius walked on into eternity, there to be with the saviour he longed to see, and for whom he had laboured so many years.
The services of commemoration and celebration for Cornelius Arthur Buller, held on July 24th, 2020, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, can be viewed using the link below.
In accordance with Cornelius’ wishes and with the family’s blessing, we invite gifts toward the ongoing work of NAIITS in memory of Cornelius.

NAIITS An Indigenous Learning Community is hosting a comprehensive evaluation visit for initial accreditation by the ATS Commission on Accrediting on March 8-11, 2021. The purpose of this visit is to verify that the school meets all applicable Commission Standards of Accreditation.

Comments may also or instead be sent in writing to Terry LeBlanc (PO Box 1169, Montague, PE, C0A1R0, Canada). All comments will be shared with the onsite evaluation committee.”
