The JISD aims to:

• Bring to light new paradigms and conceptions of social work practice and research in the service of indigenous peoples worldwide and the communities in which they live.

• Provide a forum for scholars and community practitioners committed to approaches which re-empower indigenous ways and sustainability practices.

• Establish connections between social workers, interdisciplinary practitioners and diverse disciplines committed to sustainable practices benefiting mankind.
