Institute for American Indian Research/IFAIR - at UNM

Institute for American Indian Research/IFAIR - at UNM The Institute for Indigenous Research (IFAIR) brings together faculty members from across disciplines to center Native American Studies as theory and praxis in all areas of scholarship.

We facilitate research by providing active support for faculty and graduate research, highlighting Indigenous studies initiatives across campus, and providing a forum for interdisciplinary conversation between and among Native and non-Native faculty and students committed to such issues. We promote community-inspired, service-oriented scholarship that will link the university to Native American Nations and communities and generate discussion of Indigenous issues both within the university and in the surrounding area. We recruit and retain American Indian faculty members and graduate students and nurture American Indian intellectuals at every level. We generate intellectual and financial resources for Indigenous research at UNM and in the community. We support all initiatives of the Native American Studies Program (NAS) and coordinate new initiatives with NAS and other existing and future Native Programs, Institutes, etc.

Mission: To facilitate research that contributes to the decolonization, sovereignty, and self-determination of Indigenous peoples by providing initiatives that support such research endeavors and by providing a forum for interdisciplinary conversation between and among Native and non-Native faculty and students committed to such issues; To promote community-inspired, service-oriented scholarship that will link the university to Native American Nations and communities and generate discussion of Indigenous issues both within the university and in the surrounding area; To recruit and retain American Indian faculty members and graduate students and nurture American Indian intellectuals at every level; To generate intellectual and financial resources for the Institute; To support all initiatives of the Native American Studies Program (NAS) and to coordinate new initiatives with NAS and other existing and future Native Programs, Institutes, etc.

Letter of support for Africana Studies by UNM Faculty - May 5, 2020 (476 signatures as of May 8, 2020)

We stand together as faculty at the University of New Mexico to oppose racism and racist actions directed at the Africana Studies program and its leadership. The Africana Studies program serves the entire university and the state of New Mexico. The faculty, staff and students in the program devote themselves to the study of the critical and formative contributions of African American and African descent people. Moreover, the program faculty build bridges and relationships of human understanding across diverse communities within the state and globally. As faculty familiar with the program, we hold Africana Studies in the highest regard and will not tolerate anti-blackness and all of its associated expressions of bigotry and racism.

We therefore do not just offer a casual condemnation to recent and past racist practices and expressions against African Americans at UNM. We strongly and passionately condemn the targeted attacks against Africana Studies. We resolutely stand with the program and its community in the face of recent despicable actions that necessitate a unified public statement of opposition. We also support the NAACP’s call for an investigation of these recent incidences as hate crimes. African American faculty, staff and students have been the ongoing targets of racist individuals and their practices at UNM. Moreover, we also support dismantling any systemic and underlying forms of inequality at UNM and in the state that provide the context for racist individuals and their attacks.

Finally, we will remain vigilant against hateful and divisive language that endangers the lives, experiences and academic freedoms of our students, staff and faculty in Africana Studies. We value, respect and honor the integral and essential value that Africana Studies offers our university and the entire state of New Mexico.
