Editors: Kelly McDonough and K. Tsianina Lomawaima
NAIS frames, deploys, and critically challenges the local and global contours of Indigenous studies

As the journal of the Native American and Indigenous Studies Association, Native American and Indigenous Studies (NAIS) is based in North America but seeks to bridge the distances across the Indigenous world.
