“Syncretism, shamanism, animism, pan-Indianism” are often concerns we hear in reference to Indigenous Spirituality. In this session, we will consider terms and our response as an evangelical organization. We will explore an indigenous understanding of human spirituality & ceremony as we consider the implications of the Truth & Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action #60 to “respect Indigenous spirituality in its own right”. An overview of pow-wows, smudging, the sweat lodge and other ceremonies will be shared.
