Rita has a rich experience of ministering among First Nations of the north and various indigenous tribes. One can hear about her adventures from her being abandoned up north as a 4-year old, to her current ministry with an emphasis on reconciliation, prayer and intercession.
She was born on the rez in Sandy Bay, Saskatchewan, got a Catholic education, was saved at 26 in a Baptist church, baptized in a Pentecostal church and later became an ordained minister.
She ministered in Alaska, the Artic and at various international conferences with people like Jean Stephansen, John Dawson, Peter Wagner, Chuck Pierce, and more. Her travels took her to many countries including the Israeli and Palestinian people where they even spoke at the Knesset.
You may read her testimony "Abandoned but not forsaken".
As a Native American woman, my identity is in Christ first and when you know who you are in Him first, then He gives it back to you because He is a God of restoration. If you need a mother or a father, or a best friend, Jesus is whatever you need Him to be.
If you are a First Nations person, He gives you back your songs, your language, your dances-everything about you that makes you who you are as a Native person.
I've learned that every culture has things that are precious and vile. You have to take the precious from the vile. Take the good and use it for His glory and leave the bad.
Every culture is a sin-stained culture. None of us are without sin.
