In a panel discussion at 2018 NASSS Conference, Chen Chen, C. Richard King, John Singer, Tricia McGuire-Adams, Natalie Welch started a conversation on: How could meaningful allyships be built between sport scholars who examine race (and other social justice projects) and those who pursue decolonizing projects that challenge the foundation of settler colonialism? While receiving a considerable amount of positive feedback, the panel sees the value of extending the critical conversation to future NASSS conferences. These topics of discussion are especially important considering the “United States of America’s” white nationalist churn and the prominence of Native Americans in the current U.S. socio-political landscape. This panel will continue to explore barriers and opportunities for settler scholars of various backgrounds in building ethical, responsible, accountable, and long-lasting relations with Indigenous scholars and communities, part of which will illustrate ways in which NASSS can become a space that is generative to, rather than hindering of, these relations.
