Native American Academics Join Boycott of Israeli Universities

By: JTA

A Native American studies association is the third U.S. academic body this year to recommend its members boycott Israeli universities.

The Native American and Indigenous Studies Association in a Dec. 15 announcement said it “encourages NAISA members to boycott Israeli academic institutions because they are imbricated with the Israeli state and we wish to place pressure on that state to change its policies.”

The statement encouraged “generous dialogue” on the issue and said the boycott was open to discussion at the group’s national conference in May in Austin, Texas.

Like the American Studies Association, which announced its own boycott this week, the NAISA boycott does not target individuals and is not binding on members.

The Asian American Studies Association approved a similar boycott in April.

    The indians don't like Israel? Yawn.

  3. The dogs bark, so what? — They don't even have teeth and most importantly, the convoy continues on

  4. Bobby Harris says:

    the boycott needs toi be stopped America is turning its country into a socialist behavior towards others and that needs to stop right there. whats wrong with americans are they so afraid to stand up and say no more attacks on jews. I think so Indians need to wake up look what happen American settlers took the land from Indians so are PA taking land from jews they need to really wake up for real bro. this isn't some peace this is a war on boycott that needs to be stopped before it escalates someone needs to go forward and show support for Israeli universities

  5. Yechiel Baum says:

    Native American Indians should boycott American universities first for stealing the Indians land and making the capital Washington on Indian land. In reciprications, should should boycott Indian gambling resorts, cigarettes and tourist attraction.

  6. I have donated many thousands of dollars to Native American Charities over the past two decades. Twenty years ago,I symbolically adopted a Native elder and sent gifts and money to her. I have spent weeks at a rtime on the Pine Ridge Resservation, doing whatever I could to help. I distributed Christmas baskets to "poor" families on the Oglala Reservation at 24 below zero. Never again. I will no longer lift a finger or a dollar for Native causes. I encourage all who are against the academic boycott,to boycott all native causes.I believe we should not supprt anyone who is out to ham us. When the next appeal for $$ for native Americans charity arrives in your mail,please file it in the round file.
