In November, we honor Indigenous contributions to the arts, media, academia, social justice movements, and more.
Throughout the month we're sharing pictures from our archives on our social media accounts (@uazlibraries). These image are chosen by the Special Collections student employees.
University Libraries host a wide array of resources focused on American Indians, including the North American Indian Drama database, which contains over 250 plays from American Indian and First Nation playwrights, and access to more than 200 years of Indigenous journalism from the U.S. and Canada through American Indian Newspapers. Learn about the American Indian Movement and Native American Radicalism, including FBI documentation on AIM as well as informant reports and materials.
Research guides include American Indian Studies and Information from Non-Dominant Perspectives. You can also find more American Indian Studies resources in the A-Z Database guide. Search the Arizona Archives Online repository for different archival collections focused on Native Nations of Arizona.
