NAISA Virtual Exhibit

Welcome to the UNC Press Virtual Exhibit for the Native American & Indigenous Studies Association.

UNC Press NAISA Virtual Exhibit

Since we can’t be together at the conference, we’re bringing our book exhibit to you.

From virtually anywhere, you can browse our list of new and recent titles, chat with our editor Mark Simpson-Vos, learn about our new books in our Critical Indigeneities Series, and more.
