Indigenous People

  • The World Wide Web Virtual Library: INDIGENOUS STUDIES
  • Center for World Indigenous Studies. The Center serves as a clearinghouse of ideas between nations and between nations and states governments. CWIS receives documents, publications and undocumented information from throughout the world. These materials are carefully archived. Organizations, governments, and individuals frequently ask CWIS to provide information from Fourth World nations or about nations. We gather and store information and make it available. We also promote direct interchange of information through "people exchanges," encouraging direct visits between people in their territories, through workshops, symposia, conferences and the internationally accessible, computerized Fourth World Documentation Project through the Internet.

  • NativeWeb. Documents in this site are organized according to Subject Categories, Geographic Regions, Nations/Peoples, Native Literatures, Native Languages, Native Newsletters and Journals, Native Organizations, Bibliographies, Other Native information sites, NativeWeb Electronic Store, and Native Events Calendar.
