Web page:

NAISA began through exploratory meetings hosted by the University of Oklahoma in 2007 and by the University of Georgia in 2008, incorporated in 2009, and has since become the premiere international and interdisciplinary professional organization for scholars, graduate students, independent researchers, and community members interested in all aspects of Indigenous Studies. Through their annual conference, the journal, and prizes NAISA provides a forum for different kinds of research, intellectual traditions, and knowledge practices to be placed in conversation, where we can extend our understandings across disciplinary and epistemological boundaries and learn more about the important work going on in scores of different fields and regions.

First published in 2014, NAIS, the journal of the Native American and Indigenous Studies Association, seeks to bridge the distances across the Indigenous world. Editors of NAIS are committed to creating a dynamic intellectual space for the communication and dissemination of excellent scholarship related to Indigenous Studies. Through this journal authors participate in the process of framing, deploying, and otherwise critically challenging the local and global contours of Indigenous studies.
