MILTON, ON-A partnership has been formed between Rain Ministries and OneBook to translate an English paraphrase of the New Testament created especially for and by First Nations people. The goal of the First Nations Version is to enable over seven million English-speaking Indigenous people on Turtle Island to read and hear 'Creator's Eternal Word' in the words that reflect their heart languages.
Due to forced assimilation, the great majority of First Nations peoples lost the use of their mother tongues. Over the past 150 years, English has become their only spoken language.
