Canadian Journal Of Native Studies

The Canadian Journal of Native Studies is a highly recognized journal in the field of Native Studies. The CJNS was founded by Dr. Samuel Corrigan, Professor at Brandon University, who served as Chief Editor from 1981 – 2008. It was originally published by the Society for the Advancement of Native Studies.  It comes out on a bi-annual basis, and publishes original research which is peer reviewed.

As a general focus, the journal publishes anthropological, historical, sociological, political, legal, education and cultural issues affecting First Nations people. Although the majority of articles deal with Indigenous peoples in Canada, it also publishes articles dealing with Indigenous peoples world-wide.

A good measure of the journal’s influence is the vast number of sources which index the title. These include: America: History and Life, Anthropological Index, Bibliography of Natives of North America; CPIQ: Canadian Periodical Index, Indigenous Studies Portal, First Nations Periodical Index, Historical Abstracts, and MLA International Bibliography.
