The CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS for the NAIS Journal is Now Open!
Native American and Indigenous Studies (NAIS) is the journal of the Native American and Indigenous Studies Association, which was founded in 2008 to support the scholarly and creative work of Native studies scholars. Published by the University of Minnesota Press, NAIS features scholarly articles, research notes, commentary, and reviews on the large and growing field of Indigenous studies. The editors encourage NAISA members to further the field’s knowledge of its broad and international currents through consideration of new books, films, exhibits, and other pertinent materials.

NAIS will be published twice a year by the University of Minnesota Press, and has as its mandate a focus on publishing the best interdisciplinary scholarship in international Native American and Indigenous Studies. It will draw on the extraordinary professional expertise of our ever-expanding membership, and will provide an intellectually rigorous and ethically engaged forum for smart, provocative, and exciting scholarship in the field. It will provide 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.

The Co-Editors wish to encourage as many submissions as possible from NAISA membership and beyond. Anyone wishing to submit is encouraged to do so, including sitting members of any elected NAISA body (such as the Council or Nominations Committee) or members of any appointed body (such as the Editorial Board). The Co-Editors will take great care that any given issue, and each yearly volume (2 issues) will be balanced in authorship and will not over-represent NAISA officers/council/committee members/editorial board members. The occasional guest-edited special theme issue might prove the only rare exception to this policy.

On December 3, 2012, the Council of the Native American and Indigenous Studies Association/NAISA proudly announced the appointment of Professors Jean O’Brien (White Earth Ojibwe, University of Minnesota) and Robert Warrior (Osage, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign) as the inaugural Co-Editors for the new journal Native American & Indigenous Studies. O’Brien and Warrior bring a wealth of professional experience, intellectual leadership, and substantial institutional resources to the inaugural editorial office for NAIS. The journal will be published by the University of Minnesota Press.

O’Brien and Warrior are leading scholars, authors, and mentors in the fields of Native Studies, and bring experience in program leadership and program development to the journal. In addition to their impressive academic and professional strengths, Professors O’Brien and Warrior distinguished their application with an outstanding suite of institutional resources. Support in the form of office space and Research Assistant positions has been pledged by the University of Minnesota and the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. As a new journal, NAIS is fortunate to count on the leadership of two extraordinary scholars as well as the support of their respective departments and universities.
