Native American and Indigenous Studies Association

The premiere international & interdisciplinary professional organization for scholars, graduate students, independent researchers, and community members interested in all aspects of Indigenous Studies.

The attached files document some of NAISA's history, including the principles that guided the association's founding and statements that founding steering committee members made at the organizing meeting in Oklahoma in 2007 (please note that Ines Hernandez-Avila, J. Kehaulani Kauanui, and Jace Weaver also made remarks at the same session, but did not save a written version).
