The Indigenous Studies Working Group (ISWG) is a community of scholars, activists, students, and community members who get together 6-8 times per semester to share ideas and offer feedback on each other’s work. The intention of ISWG is to establish an ongoing campus space where Indigenous scholars – and those who focus on Indigenous issues – can share ideas in an environment that truly recognizes Indigenous knowledge and its importance. Moreover, ISWG intends to be a non-competitive and dialogical space where Indigenous knowledge serves to decolonize the academy.
