Description:
The North American Indian Thought and Culture Database contains more than 100,000 pages of personal stories, many of which are previously unpublished, rare, or hard to find. The collection presents the entire spectrum of Indian and Canadian First People experiences from their own point of view. Firsthand accounts reveal how Indians lived, thought, and fought to protect their interests; how the tribes interacted with each other and the white invaders; and how they reacted to the constantly changing and challenging situations they faced. These rare and informative biographies are supported with historical materials that provide context for the personal stories. Also included is a detailed timeline of Indian events, cross-referenced by region and tribe, to further aid in contextual placement.
