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.

NAISA is delighted to announce that the 2016 Annual Meeting of the association will take place in Honolulu, Hawaiʻi on May 18-21.

The hosts for the meeting are the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa; the National Indigenous Research and Knowledges Network (NIRAKN), Division of Research and Commercialisation at Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia; and the Global Indigeneity and Reconciliation Program at the RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia.

The meeting will run from Wednesday, May 18, to Saturday, May 21, with Thursday, May 19 being dedicated to a day of service. Attendees will have the opportunity to choose from a number of options for working with local groups around Honolulu and the island of Oʻahu. This is an exciting opportunity to be of service while learning more about contemporary Hawaiʻi, exploring causes of vital interest in indigenous studies, and connecting with activists, artists, and scholars on Oʻahu. 

Conference sessions will be held on the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa campus. Accommodations will be at the Ala Moana Hotel, with shuttle service throughout the day between the two locations.

Please look for updates in your email and at in coming months. 

See you in Honolulu!
