About Us

 

This blog is for members of the African-Native American scholars listserve and website to post upcoming events, publications, calls, and other information pertinant to African-Native American literatures, identities, rhetorics, arts, communities, and traditions. We also welcome other scholars who are respectfully engaged with African-Native American Studies.

In taking a specific decolonial and anti-racist stance, we include all those who identify as African-Native American, Red-Black, Black Indian, Freedmen, Métis, Mestiza/o, Mixedblood, Mestee, Hapa, Inuit, Alaskan Native, American Indian, First Nations, Aboriginal, Native Canadian, and Native Hawai’ian unenrolled or enrolled, federally recognized or not federally recognized, as well as those who identify with specific mixed-race communities (i.e. Melungeon, Creole, Redbone), and other indigenous peoples of the Americas who are also of African descent.

The blog, list, and website are for scholarly purposes. They are meant to be a welcoming space and take a stance for healing, decolonization, continuance, and reconciliation in our communities. As part of this, we take a specific stance against racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, classism, ageism, and other forms of oppression.

Welcome!
