David Peck, founder of SoChange, a social enterprise that works with the corporate and NGO community in leadership development, innovation and entrepreneurship, interviewed Terry LeBlanc in his podcast called Face2Face. In this episode, Terry talks about “weaponized” religion, compound worldviews, about living in a “both/and” world, and unpacks notions of interdependence, integration and inter-relationship.

Indigenous Pathways Director Calls for Real Change

The Executive Director of Indigenous Pathways, Terry LeBlanc, speaks out about the Western economic systems and theory, and the environment. A great read!

"Not unlike Copenhagen in 2009, or Kyoto in 1997, governments are posturing so as not to give away economic advantage. National prosperity continues to trump the environment."

Indigenous Pathways Introduction
(Sept 2, 2011)
NAIITS - A Learning Community
NAIITS, is one of three divisions of Indigenous Pathways, a non-sectarian organization dedicated to working together with the Indigenous community to develop and articulate Indigenous perspectives in theology and practice. We encourage Indigenous learning styles and world views in our instruction as we facilitate the development of a body of written work addressing biblical, theological, and ethical issues from within Native North American and other Indigenous perspectives. We do so in concert with partners of other ethnicities who would speak into this context. NAIITS currently has five degree program partnerships offering BA, MA and Ph.D programs.
