American Indian Histories and Cultures, one of over 200 databases made available by the libraries to current TWU students and faculty and staff members, contains materials spanning four centuries of North and Central American Indian history and culture. This extensive collection includes manuscripts (treaties, speeches, petitions, diaries, travel journals and ledger books); artwork (illustrations, sketches, watercolors, oil paintings and American Indian art); American Indian newspapers from the 1960s to the 1990s; rare printed books; photographs; and maps (navigating through this much material can be overwhelming; look for Not Sure Where to Start? on the homepage for an introduction to the database, complete with guided tour.) Rare and diverse, the materials contained in American Indian Histories and Cultures provide unique insights into the history and culture of Native Americans for scholars, educators and students.
Access American Indian Histories and Cultures, with current Pioneer Portal login information, from the TWU Libraries homepage (see Databases A-Z List under the heading Research.) For assistance please contact us.
