Mission Statement


S.L.A.M. TRIPS exists to provide youth groups with a Christ-centered and cross-cultural mission trip on the Yakama Reservation where students are taught to think and function within an Indigenous missiological paradigm instead of the historical Western paradigm

Description


S.L.A.M. TRIPS is a program of Mending Wings?a nonprofit, Native American youth organization located on the Yakama Reservation in Washington State. We offer cross-cultural, summer youth mission trip experiences on our reservation. There are many summer mission trip opportunities that your youth group could be a part of, but we believe we are unique for several reasons: We are Native-American owned and operated. Something you won?t see very often! We immerse groups in our culture?not just talk about our culture. We offer an indigenous perspective on missions and Christianity vs. a Western perspective. All food, lodging, and programs are covered as part of the fee so that you don?t have to worry about it. You will receive cultural orientation from local Native people?not from non-Indian people who live on the reservation. We are a cross-cultural destination without your group ever having to leave the country?and for much less money!
