The academic discipline of NAIS has always been informed by╠řcommunity╠řknowledges and worked in partnership with Native╠řcommunities. CNAIS seeks to emulate the best models of Native American & Indigenous Studies╠řdisciplinary practices,╠řwhich introduce Indigenous knowledges into╠řacademic discourse and indigenize academic╠řmethods through their inclusion.╠řIn this deeply interdisciplinary area, more than perhaps any other in academia, there is a╠řneed for multiple areas of faculty (and student) expertise that can be leveraged to benefit╠řrelationships between campuses and tribal entities, facilitating research and educational╠řopportunities as well as outreach.╠ř
As such, CNAIS also partners with groups at CU as well as other CU Campuses. Additionally, we have connections in the state, nation, and internationally.╠řIf you are looking for resources in the area of Native American and Indigenous Studies, take a look at the╠ř.╠ř
