Monday, July 22 to Thursday, July 25, 2013 at the Ermineskin First Nation. We will publish a report here .
WELCOME to our indigenous,
religious and educational Centre created by the Indian Ecumenical
Conference (IEC). The IEC
brought together First Nations religious leaders from across this North American
Island in the early seventies. They authorized the creation of the Centre
in 1972. It is designed to develop Native reflection and scholarship by North
American First Nations peoples about their aboriginal, religious, cultural and
social heritage. It was incorporated as the
Centre for Indian Scholars.
You can explore some of the work we have accomplished through FOUR Robert K.
Thomas symposiums. Bob was one of the founders of the IEC and the Centre,
an anthropologist and university professor and a
world renowned Cherokee religious practitioner and thinker. Our last symposium
explored traditional wisdom and law. Check out the videos of this by
