Native American and Indigenous Studies joins academic boycott of Israel

Another group of American scholars has joined two other organizations in boycotting Israel's academic institutions.

The Native American and Indigenous Studies Association (NAISA) urges its members to boycott Israeli academia over Tel Aviv's violation of international law and UN resolutions, the NAISA president wrote on the association’s website this week.

Ohio State English Professor Chadwick Allen said the NAISA council has reached a consensus to support the boycott, saying the move followed a member-generated petition asking that the group “formally support the boycott of Israeli academic and cultural Institutions that was initiated by the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel.”
