Winnipeg, Man. —Intótemak, meaning “my friends” has been a staple in the outreach plan for Mennonite Church Canada’s Native ministry since 1972.

Now, with a complete re-design and plans for increasing national exposure, Edith and Neill von Gunten, the new Native Ministry coordinators, hope to reach more readers with a newsy approach that also highlights a variety of available resources. Past editions will also be posted on-line for readers to browse back issues.

The quarterly newsletter seeks to reflect what is happening in our communities, provinces, and the national scene as congregations and individuals interact with their Aboriginal brothers and sisters. The editors welcome articles and pictures about relationship-building, events of interest, and issues that help Natives and non-Natives learn more about each other as “friends”. Comments and further suggestions are welcome.

Anyone interested in subscribing can contact the Native Ministry office at 600 Shaftesbury Blvd., Winnipeg, MB R3P 0M4. or email . The cost is $12.00 for four issues per year.
