NAISA Membership: Join or Renew

The University of Minnesota Press has formed a publishing partnership with the Native American and Indigenous Studies Association (NAISA). NAISA is a professional organization dedicated to supporting scholars and others who work in the academic field of Native American and Indigenous studies. Founded in 2008, NAISA hosts the premier scholarly meeting in Native studies. The association has more than 900 members from over a dozen countries and scores of Indigenous nations and peoples. NAISA welcomes anyone working in the field to become a member and join in building the future of Native and Indigenous studies.

As part of our publishing partnership, the University of Minnesota Press has assumed responsibility for NAISA member services. Together, we have published an association journal, Native American and Indigenous Studies (NAIS), which began distribution in Spring 2014. NAISA members receive this journal as a benefit of membership.
