Originally prepared for an international conference on the churches and China attended by Chinese patriotic Christians, this paper focuses on the processes of indigenization and contextualization. Asian discussions of these processes are related to two Canadian illustrations: the development of indigenous structures by the Lutheran church in America-Canada Section; and the struggle of Canada's northern natives to preserve their past and to shape their future in the face of a proposed pipeline across their land. Asian and feminist conclusions are affirmed: contextualization is the way towards, rather than a threat to, catholicity, universality and transcendence.
