On March 18 TMTC held a panel discussion on themes emerging from the book, Buffalo Shout, Salmon Cry: Conversations on Creation, Land Justice, and Life Together, edited by Steve Heinrichs and published by Herald Press. An emphasis on naming the connection between colonization and Christianity, stating the need for ongoing repentance and restitution on the part of churches and government, sharing concerns regarding language (e.g. the words "indigenous" and "settler"), and the desire to create a different history were key themes that emerged.
The theme of this, the sixth Graduate Student Conference initiated by the Toronto Mennonite Theological Centre, reflects the idea of current Anabaptist-Mennonite scholars taking “acculturation” one step further, wading into the messiness of “the world” through the recognition and exploration of multiple voices, contexts, and identities among Anabaptist-Mennonites. Signs of this reality are apparent in academia: perhaps more than ever before, Anabaptist- Mennonite scholars can be found in every discipline in public universities.
