American Indian Histories and Cultures is a deep and wide ranging selection of visual and textual resources related to Native American culture and history. Taken from the Newberry Library’s Edward E Ayer Collection, one of the world’s most comprehensive collections of American Indian history, the resource provides documents, images, context, and insight into American Indian culture and history, the European settlement of the Americas, and the interactions between the two groups. Some highlights included in this collection are the Black Horse Ledger Drawings, American Indian Newspapers, Speeches and petitions written by American Indians, and thousands of photographs. As an added feature, this resource is fully cross-searchable with The American West collection, a resource from Adam Matthew on Western Americana sourced from the Newberry Library’s prestigious Everett D. Graff Collection. *Access to this subscription database is available on-site through any of the Newberry’s public computers.*
