This guide is to help students and other researchers of Native American and Indigenous studies. To help you start your research, this guide is divided into subject categories located in the tabs at the top of the page.
Using the right terminology is important when writing about indigenous peoples. Most prefer to be known by their individual tribal affiliation when that information is available (e.g. Navajo, Sioux, etc.). For more general terms or if you have other terminology questions, reference these guides.
