Indigenous Pathways is a non-profit charitable organization whose purpose is to provide practical support to Indigenous people, their families and communities via its two program frameworks, iEmergence and NAIITS: An Indigenous Learning Community. Through these two platforms and their various component parts, we facilitate the health and well-being of Indigenous people through an improved capacity to effectively respond to contemporary challenges. Our aim is to create a better future.
Historic economic, cultural, and social barriers continue to manifest themselves in Indigenous life, limiting access to appropriate resources, hindering community efforts to bring a positive change to their experience of health and well-being. Indigenous Pathways introduces a way forward through training, community engagement, formal education, and counselling support programs.
Rooted in Indigenous life and values, we are simultaneously framed by our faith as followers of the Jesus Way. We offer our own stories of this experience as a way for others to find their way as well.
Decades of work as community practitioners by the staff and Board of indigenous Pathways have contributed to the development of a collection of ministries aimed at individual, family, and community well-being for indigenous peoples. We are rooted in the desire to live in right relationship with our Creator, right relationship with other human beings, and right relatedness and relationship with the rest of creation.
Indigenous Pathway’ two program frameworks, each in their own areas of expertise, seek to bring a message of health and well-being to the wider Indigenous community.
