Native American Studies

Highlighting resources about Native American communities and scholarship. Initially created for the Cultural Literacy Curriculum Institute, Lesley University, 2014. Revised and updated ahead of Native American Heritage Month, 2018.

About this Libguide

In this libguide, you will find both library and web resources featuring scholarship and resources focused on the diverse perspectives of Native Americans, represented in their own voices wherever possible.  

A word about language: this guide uses the term "Native Americans" to designate the populations as a whole. The terms "Indians" and "American Indians" are used in various sites linked from the libguide; "American Indians" and "Indians of North America" are common subject terms in library resources. I hope these linguistic variations will guide your research.
