Indigenous Peoples: North America is a new archive that allows researchers to trace the history of Native Peoples in North America from colonial relations in the 1600s to twentieth-century issues such as civil rights. Indigenous Peoples is unique in its comprehensive coverage, with collections from sources like the Library of Congress, Princeton University and the United States War and Interior Departments. The collections provide insights into social and cultural issues, law and legal history, and government and politics. Researchers across disciplines will find essential documents related to the customs, spirituality, wars, property, education, and treatment of tribes like the Navajo, Iroquois, Mohawk and Cherokee.
