Indigenous writers & scholars participate fluidly in AWP, teaching & directing affiliated programs, or working as independent writers/scholars, &/or in language revitalization & community programing. 

This group serves the purpose of supporting the annual AWP Indigenous-Aboriginal American Writers Caucus, and imparting field-related craft, pedagogy, celebrations & concerns as understood by Indigenous-Native writers from the Americas and surrounding island nations.

In order to meet the needs and concerns of Indigenous writers working in affiliated academic programming, to ensure fair treatment and quality opportunity in writerly concerns, the participating community of AWP Indigenous/Native writers calls for a forum within which to identify and communicate essential discussion and subsequently provide findings for the benefit of AWP in general.
