The Labriola Center American Indian National Book Award encourages scholarship which crosses multiple disciplines or fields of study, is relevant to contemporary North American Indian communities, and focuses on modern tribal studies, modern biographies, tribal governments or federal Indian policy. The judging panel is comprised of Dr. Donald Fixico and Dr. Katherine Osburn from the School of Historical, Philosophical and Religious Studies and Dr. David Martinez from American Indian Studies. Each year the winner of the book award is invited to the Labriola Center for an award presentation and to speak about his or her book.
