Land Acknowledgement

"Yale University acknowledges that indigenous peoples and nations, including Mohegan, Mashantucket Pequot, Eastern Pequot, Schaghticoke,Golden Hill Paugussett, Niantic, and the Quinnipiac and other Algonquian speaking peoples, have stewarded through generations the lands and waterways of what is now the state of Connecticut.  We honor and respect the enduring relationship that exists between these peoples and nations and this land."

Welcome to our research guide.

This guide focuses on Indigeneity. The resources here skew heavily North American, but attempt to provide resources around the globe.

Most indigenous cultures have oral traditions; therefore much of the primary source materials have been collected from external points of view (settlers/missionaries/conquerors/etc). Please keep this in mind when using/exploring these resources.
