Dear NAISA Members,
Due to reasons of ill health and workload, Makere Stewart-Harawira has made the difficult decision to step down from her position. NAISA Council has received and accepted her letter of resignation as of Tuesday, January 15, 2013. Please find attached an open letter to the membership from Makere.
The Council of the Native American and Indigenous Studies Association/NAISA is proud to announce the appointment of joint candidates Professors Jean O’Brien (White Earth Ojibwe, University of Minnesota) and Robert Warrior (Osage, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign) as the inaugural Co-Editors for the new journal Native American & Indigenous Studies. O’Brien and Warrior bring a wealth of professional experience, intellectual leadership, and substantial institutional resources to the inaugural editorial office for NAIS. The journal will be published by the University of Minnesota Press.
The 2014 Berkshire Conference on Women's History, "Histories on the Edge/Histoires sur la brèche" will be held in Toronto May 22-25, 2014. One of the sub-themes of the conference is "Indigenous Histories/Indigenous Worlds". If you have any questions about submitting under this sub-thee, and/or want to be put in touch with others you may want to form a panel with, please do not hesitate to contact Mary Jane McCallum - email@example.com and/or Susan Hill - firstname.lastname@example.org.
APPEAL FOR COPYRIGHT-HOLDERS
Adam Matthew Digital is a British publisher of scholarly collections of primary-source documents. We would like to trace the copyright-holders of a selection of items relating to American Indian history, within the Edward E. Ayer Collection at the Newberry Library in Chicago.

I'd like to put together a panel on the possibilities and potential problems in teaching Native and Indigenous Studies online. Is it a good way to reach students who can't come to campus? Does it problematize the values of relationship and "wisdom sits in places" that are important to the field? Are you teaching NAS online currently, and if so, how is it working? Please contact me if you're interested: email@example.com
