Native American and Indigenous Studies invites reviews of books and other materials on topics relevant to our field for publication in the journal. The journal accepts unsolicited reviews, but the editors suggest being in touch with NAIS editorial staff in order to communicate about specific review ideas and a reviewer’s qualifications.


Reviews should be no more than 750 words and submitted in 12-point Times New Roman font. We will consider essays of greater length that review multiple books, films, or other materials on a particular topic, theme, or area, but communicating with NAIS editorial staff before undertaking such an essay is encouraged.


Publishers and distributors can send materials for review consideration to:
