Part of Newspaper about American Indians.

American Indian Newspapers aims to present a diverse and robust collection of print journalism from Indigenous peoples of the US and Canada over more than 9,000 individual editions from 1828-2016.

Representing a huge variety in style, production and audience, the newspapers include national periodicals as well as local community news and student publications. The 45 unique titles also include bi-lingual and Indigenous-language editions, such as Hawaiian, Cherokee and Navajo languages.

This collection is a tremendous supplement to American Indian Newspapers to which we have access through Ethnic Newswatch and Indigenous Peoples: North America, which also contains primary sources such as photographs, government documents, society and personal papers, and more.
