SOAN 230: Indigenous Peoples: Books & more

This course examines the situations, problems, and continually developing strategies of indigenous peoples living in various countries and regions scattered throughout the world.

Primo Tips

Search Primo by the name or identification of your indigenous group, or by terms that describe the issues you're researching, in order to find articles, books and other types of materials related to your research.

Books are a great place to find foundational and/or historical information about the groups and issues you're interested in.  You might want to start your research by finding a scholarly book or two.

You can use the dropdown menu to the left of the Primo search box to limit to Collins Library.  This will guide you to books, electronic books, and other materials which can be accessed at the Collins Library, but will remove individual journal articles from your search.
