TRADITIONAL ECOLOGICAL KNOWLEDGE
PAST – PRESENT – FUTURE
“It is traditional to adapt and adaptation is traditional”
University of New Hampshire, Durham (Browne Center)
September 22-24, 2011
Proposals are invited for the second annual interdisciplinary Indigenous New England conference to be held September 22-24 at the University of New Hampshire. This year’s theme is Traditional Ecological Knowledge: Past – Present – Future.
Celts in the Americas will be the first conference devoted to the history, culture, music, and literature of Celtic-speaking peoples in North and South America. Over 40 leading scholars will discuss Breton, Cornish, Irish Gaelic, Manx, Scottish Gaelic, and Welsh immigrant communities and their fascinating, untold legacies in the Americas.
I am pleased to announce that the 2012 and 2013 meetings are now set:
The NAISA Fourth Annual Meeting will take place at the Mohegan Sun Convention Center from June 3rd (arrival date) through June 6th, hosted by the University of Massachusetts Boston, Dartmouth College, Harvard University, University of Massachusetts Amherst, and Yale University.
The Fifth Annual Meeting will take place June 13-15, 2013 at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon.

Keynote Speaker: Henrietta Mann
Intensions CFP: The Resurgence of Indigenous Women's Knowledge and Resistance in Relations to Land and Territoriality: transnational and interdisciplinary perspectives
DEADLINE 30 JUNE 2011
Issue#6 Intensions examines the transformative effects of dissent, resistance, and social change after five centuries of Indigenous political engagement and corporeal interaction with the Empire.
As everyone must now be aware, many nations and organizations (and family members) have asked the White House for an apology for using the “Geronimo” code name to describe Osama Bin Laden. I am wondering if NAISA plans to add its voice, whether before or during our upcoming conference.
The undeniable connection between Manifest Destiny and overseas imperial expansion has been well documented by many activists and scholars for many decades, including Roxanne Dunbar Ortiz and Richard Drinnon back in the 1980s, and most recently this week by Matthew Fletcher and Peter Vicaire.

Critical Issues in Indigenous Studies
Series Editors Jeffrey P. Shepherd and Myla Vicenti Carpio
Drawing upon the contributions of myriad theoretical and contextual perspectives in the field of Native/Indigenous Studies, this series seeks to transcend disciplinary boundaries by anchoring intellectual work within an Indigenous framework that reflects Native-centered concerns and objectives. The series encourages a critical assessment of the “locations of engagement,” where the lived experiences of Indigenous peoples intersect with scholarly and Indigenous intellectual production.
