Dr. Justine Smith is a graduate student from Harvard Divinity School, concentrating in New Testament, early Christian origins, and Native American studies. Her specialization is in biblical translation—theory and method. She has worked extensively in the treaty rights/Native sovereignty movements and within environmental, social justice, and women’s health organizations. Smith is currently teaching with the North American Institute for Indigenous Theological Institute (NAIITS) and pastors the Norman First American United Methodist Church in Oklahoma.
