First Nations Version

An Indigenous Translation of the New Testament

A new translation, attempting to capture the simplicity, clarity, and beauty of our Native storytellers in English while remaining faithful to the original language of the New Testament

Reading the First Nations Version of the New Testament is like listening to a wise elder pass down ancient teachings.
