Welcome!

Welcome to the Native American Studies: The Politics of Identity Working Group!

We are excited to announce the Native American Studies: The Politics of Identity working group will be holding its introductory meeting. At this meeting we hope to gain suggestions from everyone so this group can be as collaborative as possible. Exploring the topic of Native identity is a large undertaking, but through focused themes such as land, law, race, and gender, the intersections and nuances of Native identity can be discussed in depth. Using current issues and connecting them to scholarly works is a goal that our working goup hopes to achieve. In addition, the working group can be a space to talk through difficult questions about what Native American Studies is, the relation between academia and communities, and how Native and non-Native scholars negotiate their positions.
