From the Editors: SAIL: Fortieth Anniversary Issue

From the Editors: SAIL: Fortieth Anniversary Issue From the Editors SAIL: Fortieth Anniversary Issue It’s been a wildly busy fi rst year for us since Siobhan came on as SAIL general editor in 2016—fi rst with Michelle Raheja, now with June Scudeler—and started building a dynamic group of new (and old) associate editors and editorial assistants.

Abstract

From the Editors SAIL: Fortieth Anniversary Issue It’s been a wildly busy fi rst year for us since Siobhan came on as SAIL general editor in 2016—fi rst with Michelle Raheja, now with June Scudeler—and started building a dynamic group of new (and old) associate editors and editorial assistants. So the journal’s fortieth anniversary in 2017 very nearly caught us unawares. But here we are, four decades into publication of the fl agship journal for Native American and Indigenous literary studies. Like other editors before us, we feel the need to take some stock of how things have developed and where we hope our ever- diverse and ever- burgeoning fi eld might go. Since 2003 ASAIL, our host association, whose newsletter became SAIL in 1997, has met annually under the generous hospitality of the Native American Literature Symposium (if you haven’t caught up with Clan Mother LeAnne Howe’s history of that symposium, it’s a must- read). In 2013 we also welcomed the arrival of an exciting new sister organization, the Indigenous Literary Studies Association (ILSA). It was founded by the late Jo- Ann Episkenew (Métis) and Renate Eigenbrod along with Kristina Bidwell (NunatuKavut [Labrador]), Keavy Martin, Sam McKegney, Rick
