Resources for the study of American Indians


Welcome to the Native American Studies guide.

Native American Studies Research Guide

Native American studies investigate the history and culture of indigenous peoples of the Americas. Native American people, or American Indians, belong to hundreds of different cultures, societies, and language groups; the broad category Native American frequently will be merely a starting point for research into specific Native American groups or individuals. The focus of most Native American studies frequently falls into the subject area of Indians of North America; this guide points to resources on indigenous peoples from the entire western hemisphere when appropriate information is available.
