When Native Studies as a discipline was first launched in 1969, it was a movement to indigenize a space within the academy. After mainstream universitiesí initial rush to initiate Native Studies programs, indigenizing a space, even after four decades, has proven difficult. Since Native Studies addresses the totality of Native Peoples, the criteria for assessing candidates for a Native Studies position are critically important. Native Studies searches, perhaps more than other routine program matters, concern whether the search process and the resulting hire reflects the best interest of the discipline. This paper outlines Native Studies criteria for assessing candidates.
