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.
As you are probably aware, in the waning hours of the legislative session, the Georgia General Assembly passed Arizona-like anti-immigration legislation. As an "ethnic studies" unit at the flagship institution in the University System of Georgia, the faculty of the Institute of Native American Studies felt it was important to act. Reacting quickly, the faculty unanimously endorsed/signed a letter to the governor of Georgia, protesting and urging him to veto the bill.
As president-elect of the Native American and Indigenous Studies Association, I extend to you a special invitation to this year’s conference in Sacramento, May 19, 20, and 21. Indigenous intellectuals coming together to exchange ideas, network, and strategize ways to support Indigenous peoples’ struggles is important and not to be underestimated.
