Native American and Indigenous Studies

A compilation of Library and other resources at Brown that allow for exploration of the Indigenous experience of native peoples in North America and around the world


The Brown University Library has in its holdings a wealth of material for research on Indigenous peoples in North America and around the globe.  Uncovering this material can be something of a challenge.  Some formats (books, databases) are more readily discovered and user-friendly than others (microform).
