Meeting Description: The American Indian Workshop (AIW) was founded in 1980 and has become the most important European scholarly platform for research concerned with topics related to the Indigenous Peoples of North America. AIW conferences are hosted by a different European academic institution each year and in 2014 the AIW's 35th edition will be organized at the University of Leiden, in collaboration with the National Museum of Ethnology. The date for this conference has been set for May 21 - 25, 2014.

The theme of the 35th AIW conference will be: Communication is Key. This theme is designed to facilitate a discussion of Native American communication in a literal sense, in fields such as linguistics and media, as well as issues of communication of a broader scope, including such themes as authenticity, authorization, research, education, representation, policy, interpretation and cross-cultural competency. The organizers of the AIW Leiden hope to include threads from many different academic fields, including but not limited to: linguistics, anthropology, sociology, history, archeology, museology, gender studies, religion, philosophy, law, politics, art and media studies.
