Indigenous Theology (NAIITS)

Explore theology, history and the practice of ministry from Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander, and world Indigenous perspectives.

Traditionally, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities did not compartmentalise their spirituality, or faith. Communities developed their own theologies but these were not necessarily the same as western ideas of theology. Indigenous life is experiential and therefore theology was practice!

In the 21st century, much has changed. We still focus our energies on helping people walk out life in a good way. Now it is a path centered in the person, work, life, teaching, death and resurrection of Jesus that is also rooted in Indigenous cultures and histories. Whether in the development of new theologies or in our forums for dialogue and teaching, it is this understanding that we speak of as our path toward wholeness.
