The Native Philosophy Project at Lakehead University, Thunder Bay, Ontario is proud to introduce a new journal, Ayaangwaamizin: International Journal of Indigenous Philosophy, a refereed academic journal. It is the first journal devoted to the examination of Indifenous philosophy. Its existence is a recognition of the growing number of Indigenous scholars. who are engaged in critically examining philosophical ideas and concepts in their own cultural traditions, in doing comparative studies of Indigenous and non-Indigenous philosophies, and in examining the influence of Indigenous philosophical thought on the dominant culture.

Ayaangwaamizin is published twice yearly through editorial offices in Canada and the United States. In order to truly reflect Indigenous thought, the editors are both Indigenous philosophers, and all papers are refereed by Indigenous people. The Advisory Board consists predominantly of Indigenous people. The intended scope of the journal is broadly international. Recognizing that philosophical thought can be a dimension of other disciplines, the journal welcomes philosophically oriented articles from other disciplines such as law, anthropology, political science, literature, and religious studies.
