THE SOCIOLOGY OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLES AND NATIVE NATIONS
The Sociology of Indigenous Peoples and Native Nations is the first section in the 115 years of the American Sociological Association that provides an official space for scholarship on Indigenous sociology. The purpose of this section is to advance scholarship to address the erasure of Indigenous Peoples within the discipline and resist the settler-colonialist foundations of sociology. In doing so, we challenge the illusion that "colonialism happens elsewhere," while still attending to decolonial struggles of Indigenous Peoples globally. The Section encourages and promotes research and teaching with, by, and for Indigenous Peoples and Native Nations. Any member of the American Sociological Association, regardless of rank or institutional affiliation, who shares these research or teaching interests is encouraged to join.
For information about the section, or ways to become involved, please contact any of the section officers.
