“Stories of Resistance from Indigenous Scholars”


For over a generation, indigenous scholars have pushed the academy to recognize the importance of issues related to native peoples and the necessity of adopting decolonizing research methodologies. To advance this mandate, scholars from diverse disciplines ranging from psychology to drama and nursing to communications, continue to assert, refine, and expand upon research methods responsive to the needs of indigenous communities. Pursuing such research practices and agendas begins to unsettle the standards of the slowly changing academy. NOIS seeks presentations of scholarship that show how indigenous- oriented research can both transform the academic disciplines and serve the priorities of native communities.

Indigenous graduate, professional, community, and undergraduate students and scholars, staff, and faculty are invited to submit summaries or abstracts for the opportunity to present work relating to this year’s theme. *Please note that our first priority is to provide a space for graduate and professional students across multiple disciplines to present their work as emerging scholars. Adherence to the theme is a suggestion and not a requirement.

Please submit a 250-word abstract to with the subject “NOIS Symposium Submission” by April 15. Presentations can take any one of the following formats:

  • Paper presentation
  • Poster
  • Panel discussion (four members max)
  • Poetry*
  • Artwork (visual or musical; submission no longer than 20 minutes)*
  • Short film

*Poetic submissions should be the actual poem(s). Artistic submissions should include a photograph and description. Musical submissions should describe lyrics/music as they relate to the theme.
