Tribal College Press

About the Press

An imprint of Tribal College Journal, Tribal College Press (TCP) traces its roots back to 1996 with the publication of its first title, Touching Home: Stories, Essays, and Poems by Tribal College Students. The book is a collection of award-winning entries to Tribal College Journal’s annual creative writing contest. TCP published a second edition of Touching Home in 2010, which is also available as an ebook. You can order print copies of both titles by ordering directly from TCP.

In 2019, Tribal College Press rebooted and expanded its operations with the publication of Native Language Revitalization at Tribal Colleges and Universities: Overviews, Perspectives, and Profiles, an edited volume that compiles a variety of articles on the subject published over the past 30 years, offering a window into how revitalization efforts have evolved over time. In 2023, TCP published its first peer-reviewed study, American Indian Tribal Governance: A Critical Perspective, authored by TCU professor emeritus Stephen Wall. The book is intended for use in introductory political science courses at TCUs and other institutions.

TCP serves as the academic press for the nation’s 37 tribal colleges and universities (TCUs). Interdisciplinary in nature but grounded in American Indian studies, the press publishes books that pertain to TCUs or which are authored by tribal college faculty, students, and leaders.
