Lake Junaluska will host the Native American Tribal Social Justice Issues Conference June 29- July 1. Richard Twiss, a member of the Rosebud Lakota/Sioux Reservation in South Dakota will headline the event.
Twiss is the author of “One Church Many Tribes — Serving Jesus The Way God Made You” and will speak about the dispelling myths and stereotypes that plague the Native American community.
One of highlighted topics at this year’s conference is the cultural difference among tribes. Participants will identify Native American communities of the Southeastern Jurisdiction and will learn to be in ministry with Native America, not to Native America.
