Welcome to the
SAIL Home Page

         ASAIL, the Association for the Study of American Indian Literatures, was founded in 1971; between 1973 and 1975 at least five issues of an ASAIL Newsletter, ranging between 1 and 8 pages long, were published.

 SAIL Series 1 (1977-87)
        The Newsletter of the Association for the Study of American Indian Literatures, "New Series," commenced regular publication with its volume 1, no. 1, Spring 1977 issue. Its title changed, first to ASAIL Newsletter in the Summer 1978 issue (2.2) and then to Studies in American Indian Literatures (SAIL) in the Winter 1980 issue (4.1), at which time "Newsletter" became and remained part of its subtitle. SAIL "New Series" ceased independent publication with 11.2 (Spring 1987).
        This page contains archival versions of all 40 issues of SAIL "New Series" (or Series 1) published between 1977 and Spring 1987. Additionally, it includes three articles published on behalf of the Association in The Dispatch, the Newsletter of the Center for American Cultural studies, Columbia University: an interview with Karl Kroeber, Editor in Chief of SAIL between 1977 and 1987 (6.1, Fall 1987), excerpts from Larry Evers and Felipe Molina's Yaqui Deer Songs (6.2, Spring 1988), and a tribute to the University of Washington Press (6.3, Summer 1988).

 SAIL Series 2 (1989- )
       SAIL re-emerged as "Series 2" in 1989 under the editorship of Helen Jaskoski, who was succeeded by Rodney Simard in 1993, by John Purdy in 1994, and by Malea Powell in 2001. At that time also the ASAIL Newsletter was re-established, but under separate editorship.
       The policy for SAIL Series 2 has been that upon first printing, copyright reverts to the author; we have included in these archival versions every article for which we have been able to secure permission to republish online, and the collection will be continually updated as permissions are received.
