American Indian Histories and Cultures
Access American Indian Histories and Cultures
Spanning four centuries and covering North and Central America, American Indian Histories and Cultures presents unique materials from one of the finest archival collections on American Indian history and culture available – the Edward E. Ayer Collection at the Newberry Library in Chicago. From early contacts between European settlers and American Indians and the subsequent political, social and cultural effects of those encounters on American Indian life, these materials tell both the historical and the personal stories of the colonization of the Americas. Access to this resource is made possible by the Kauffman Fund.
