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.


For Native American peoples in the Southeastern United States, the long nineteenth century was a period of dramatic change. Forced to rebuild their villages, towns, and farmsteads after the fighting of the American Revolution left their homelands in ruins, the indigenous peoples of the South drew on their rich traditions, and, as historian James Taylor Carson observes, engaged in processes of political and cultural innovation to bring peace and prosperity back to the lives of Native Southerners. Despite these efforts, and as the master narrative of Native American history has taught generations of American students, the federal government’s policy of removal undermined these efforts and culminated in one of the most inglorious episodes in American history: the forced migration of Native Americans from their Southeastern homelands to Indian Territory in the trans-Mississippi West.

This special issue of American Nineteenth Century History calls for papers that reconsider the history of nineteenth-century Native Americans in the American South. Both historiographical essays and original pieces of scholarship are welcome. The editor is particularly interested in papers that provide new perspectives on the Native South in the early republic; reveal the enduring importance of spiritual and ceremonial traditions to Native Southerners during the long nineteenth century; interrogate the political economy of the South from indigenous perspectives; reevaluate issues pertaining to Native sovereignty and land title; engage with indigenous histories of race, gender, and sexuality; and introduce readers to the political, economic, and sociocultural strategies employed by Native Americans who remained in the Southeast after the removal era to sustain communities and foster collective identities.

Abstracts of 250-300 words should be sent to Dr. Gregory Smithers Please include complete contact details with your abstract. Abstracts must be received by March 30, 2015. Scholars selected to submit a completed essay for peer-review and consideration in this special issue will be asked to submit their completed paper no later than July 1, 2015.

    I like the idea of the site to help you build our history by providing information and photographs from the past. I still don’t understand any of these. I was always interested towards history. I’m not saying that it is boring. Science seems not be my cup of coffee. paris walking tours
