Resources for Native American Studies by James Tasato Mellone, Historical Cultural and Social Sciences Librarian
The QC Library is glad to celebrate Native American History Month! In this time of Thanksgiving we acknowledge the contributions to our global society made by the many Native American nations and civilizations. When discussing diversity, we remember our Native American fellow citizens, whether students or colleagues, or neighbors or friends, and recognize the continued value of their traditions of friendship and thanksgiving, spirituality and environmental consciousness.
Here are two new guides curated to encourage our learning more about Native American culture and history, inside and outside of the classroom.
The new Native American Studies research guide is a good starting place for student research.
Below are a few highlights from our Native American Heritage Month: Resources guide!
