Rev. Dr. Woodley, a Cherokee descendant recognized by the Keetoowah Band, is a recognized leader in the fields of Indigenous and Intercultural Studies, Ecology, Spirituality, Race, Theology, and Missiology.
Through his teaching and leadership, he invites Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples to decolonize and “indigenize” their worldview and practices so they can learn to walk on this earth in a good way. Rev. Dr. Woodley was pastor of the Eagle Valley Church in Carson City, Nevada, which for many years served as a unique role model as an authentic Native American church. He and his wife Edith, co-founders of Eloheh Indigenous Center for Earth Justice and Eloheh Farm and Seeds, are considered early innovators in what has been called the “Native American Contextual Movement.”
