Mission Center: The Episcopal Church: Advocacy

Native Americans and Indigenous Peoples

Episcopalian congregations strive to fully incorporate Native Americans into worship, leadership, and educational activites. Efforts to blend Native and Episcopalian traditions bring rich and varied services. The Church also encourages Native People to become leaders in their faith communities and is active in seeking government assistance for health care and other important services long promised – but not delivered - to Native Americans.

Working together for justice.
