NAISA Conference at UBC June 22-24

Over three days until Saturday, more than 1,000 scholars from around the world will gather on unceded Musqueam territory at the University of British Columbia for the annual Native American and Indigenous Studies Association (NAISA) conference. The largest interdisciplinary scholarly organization of its kind, its mandate is to “promote Native American and Indigenous studies through the encouragement of academic freedom, research, teaching, publication, the recognition of Indigenous knowledges and methodologies, the strengthening of relations among persons and institutions devoted to such studies, and the broadening of knowledge among the general public about Native American and Indigenous studies in all its diversity and complexity.”
