Indigenous Studies

International Indigenous Studies Topics

Indigenous Studies are, by their very nature, worldwide in scope and  interdisciplinary in character.   Libraries and Cultural Resources  have a wide variety of materials to support research and teaching in this area - books, journal articles, video, microforms, art, and artifacts.     You will find resources that focus not only on Canadian Indigenous resources but resources for study of Indigenous peoples around the world.   For additional help, contact your Indigenous Studies Librarian.
