Native American Art Studies Association (NAASA)

The Native American Art Studies Association hosted their first virtual Conference in November 2021, gathering members from across the United States for four days of panels, roundtables, keynotes, and social gatherings. The program included a keynote address by Patricia Marroquin Norby, associate curator of Native American art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, over 14 panel sessions and presentations, as well as virtual artist studio visits, social hours, and an awards ceremony. 

The Native American Art Studies Association (NAASA) exists to encourage the ongoing study and exchange of ideas on Native American art north of the Rio Grande and including the First Nations of Canada. Members include Native American artists and scholars, members of the academic community, museum professionals, writers, and others actively involved in the study of Native American art.
