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. It has been created with the purpose of providing initial materials important to your research process. Please be aware that the use of terminology or the use of language in this space is not intended to, but may ultimately reinforce many of the biases/tensions you have encountered during the course of your study. Additionally, while materials are presented on this document in English, you may be able to search in other languages. It is important to note that the resources here skew heavily North American, but the creators of the guide attempted to provide resources around the globe.

Another important note: 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.
