Meet Shari Russell, director of NAIITS

“NAIITS, for me, isn't just an education. It's community. It's family. It's embraced my entire life and has been transformational, even in my calling as a minister,” Shari said.

NAIITS... The Next Generation

In a spirit of deep thankfulness and continued dependence on our Creator and on each other, Indigenous Pathways is pleased to congratulate Shari Russell as she takes up the role as full Director of NAIITS: An Indigenous Learning Community.

Founding Director Terry LeBlanc and his wife Bev now move into the next season of their lives taking on positions as resident “elders” of Indigenous Pathways and Terry as Director Emeritus of NAIITS. Terry will also dedicate himself to writing, disseminating novel approaches to indigenizing and decolonizing theologies, and enjoying community with friends and relatives of Abegweit First Nation Mi’kmaw community where Terry and Bev are honoured to serve in a teaching capacity at the Healing Centre.
