American Indian Resources: Home

This is an introductory guide to resources for Native American Studies. Some, but not all, of these are available through the Edmon Low Library, Oklahoma State University, Stillwater.

Welcome

This LibGuide is intended to help you find resources on American Indians--their history, culture, languages, and their contemporary contributions to our society. 

The Native people we came to know as "Indians" lived here long before Europeans came to the Western Hemisphere.  Their languages, customs, their social relations, religious beliefs, art, music, and foods have enriched the world's societies.  Yet indigenous people are often overlooked in the U.S. and other countries, and are constantly forced to confront stereotypes and misinterpretations about themselves.  A goal of this guide is to reaffirm Native achievements and celebrate their resilience and creativity.
