Indigenous Caucus

Indigenous Caucus logo

The Legislative Assembly recently approved the formation of the Indigenous Caucus. All new and renewing NCA members can join all caucuses at no additional cost. You do not need to identify with the underrepresented group to be a member.

All agency begins with an awareness of absence. Indigenous agency has long been one of advocacy. The Indigenous Caucus was founded to afford the opportunity for not only this respectful advocacy to continue, but also to encourage Indigenous agency directly. The Indigenous Caucus culture is one of complete personal inclusion. The Indigenous Caucus is a cultural safe space allowing for increased agency and the birth of new avenues of research affording improved understanding of Indigenous communication. Research is necessarily tied to culture, identity, gender identification, and relationship with the content of the research. All of these elements are linked, inextricably, in a chain. The Indigenous Caucus serves to 1) make space for local Indigenous agency where conventions are held, 2) make space for Indigenous agency within the academy, and 3) to increase the Indigenous agency among associated professional organizations.
