Munguddor Bi Buya

A central aim of NATSIEC is to encourage and support Indigenous theology. In recent years we have done this through programs such as the "Light of Australia" series of talks and the "Hearts are Burning" tour of 2005.

In order to develop the program further, NATSIEC has now developed a 'think tank" which brings together experienced Indigenous Australia Christians to meet from time to time to support on another, share ideas and experiences, and produce some common statements of publications as appropriate.

The name Munguddor Bi Buya was agreed by NATSIEC to be the name for this new ecumenical Indigenous theology group. This is a combination of three words each meaning 'light'. Munguddor from the Bunjalung Aboriginal language; Bi and Buya from the two languages of the Torres Strait.

The first meeting of Munguddor Bi Buya took place in 2007. Nine leading Indigenous Christians took part. While it was not intended that the group be representative of either Indigenous Australia or Christian affiliation, but there was a good balance of cultures and experience. This first meeting sought to acknowledge and highlight the considerable efforts previously made to develop Indigenous theology, notable through the work of Indigenous theologians such as Anne Pattel-Gray, the Revd. Djinyini Gondarra, Pastor George Rosendale and the Rainbow Spirit Elders.

Ker Ker, a collection of essays produced from the Munguddor Bi Buya retreat is now available to purchase from NATSIEC. It can be purchased for $15 including postage.
