April 10-12, 2008, the Institute of Native American Studies at University of Georgia hosted an international scholarly meeting. This was the second of three meetings that a steering committee of scholars from across the continent planned as a way to explore the possibility of creating an academic association for scholars who work in American Indian, Native American. First Nations, Aboriginal, and/or Indigenous Studies. The Native American Studies program at the University of Oklahoma, Norman hosted the first meeting in May of 2007, and the American Indian Studies Department at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities will host the third meeting May 21-23, 2009.

Participants in the 2008 conference voted to ratify a constitution and bylaws to establish the Native American and Indigenous Studies Association, thereby establishing an interdisciplinary association for scholars working in these fields.

More information next year's conference can be found on the NAIS 2009 conference website. please contact a steering committee member if you have other questions or concerns.
