Native North America: A Bibliographic Guide

Native American Studies: A Bibliographic Guide

The Humanities and Social Sciences Library possesses a broad, outstanding collection of published books, serials, and related materials on Native American culture and history. Responsibility for collecting works on Native American studies lies with the General Research Division, accessible from Room 315 and the Rose Main Reading Room. Over the years, this collection has grown to reflect the great increase in publications on the indigenous peoples of North America. Since 1980, many publications now incorporate a native viewpoint; writings by Native authors and scholars have also increased. This bibliography takes note of these and other developments such as the renewed interest in Native American fine and decorative arts, historical analysis of Indian wars and civil rights movements, and the important issue of cultural patrimony, especially in the recent law devised to permit tribes to reclaim sacred artifacts and skeletal remains of ancestors from museums and other cultural institutions (known as repatriation). Terms for locating works on Native North America are described.

Materials on aspects of Native American culture may also be found within other areas of the Research Libraries. The Special Collections also possess remarkable materials – pre-1900 illustrated plate books and prints can be found in the Rare Books Division and the Wallach Division’s Print Collection. The Arents Collection contains materials on Natives and tobacco. The Wallach Division’s Photography Collection also possesses original photographs related to Native life. Materials on American Indians and the performing arts are collected by the Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center. Black American Indians are part of the subject matter of the Schomburg Center.

Civil Rights and Protest Movements

The Native civil rights movement began with the founding of the American Indian Movement (AIM) in 1968.  AIM began as a rallying group for the rights of Indians living in urban areas, and initiated a series of protests and confrontations that continued into the 1970s, including a controversial incident at Wounded Knee, South Dakota, in 1973. Many recent civil cases have centered on tribal autonomy and federal enrollment.

Fine and Decorative Arts

The United States Congress passed Public Law 101-644, The Indian Arts and Crafts Act, in 1990. Native peoples had been economically harmed by the sales of arts that have been misrepresented as “Indian made.” Under the terms of this law, imitation goods must be represented truthfully; artists must be tribally enrolled in a federally recognized tribe, nation, or village; and imports require accurate labeling. The Indian arts and crafts marketplace is a large and influential industry in North America today. Many Native fine artists are also receiving attention for their work, independent of their indigenous origins.

History and Criticism

A rich new vein of historical publications, many by Native peoples, has emerged within the last twenty years. These works serve as a counterbalance to the years of histories written by non-Natives. Topics of immediate concern have been how to protect cultural patrimony (languages, arts, life ways), preserving the past, and documentation of Native contributions to North America. Most importantly, many recent histories are correcting inaccuracies about Native activities that appeared in earlier publications, and adding an essential Native perspective to new historical evaluations.

Literature and Literary Criticism

Writing by Native Americans is growing. Authors now work in a wide variety of genres, from avant-garde belle-lettres to mystery fiction. These publications are collected, and some better-known authors include: Sherman Alexie, Tiana Bighorse, Louise Erdrich, Joy Harjo, Leslie Maron Silko, Gerald Vizenor, Anna Lee Walters, and James Welsh.

Religion

A number of North America’s Native peoples practice some form of Christianity. Many others practice their own indigenous form of religion that may be better defined as following the sacred life of their peoples. Native historians find that the terms “religions” or “myths” do not adequately address how the life of the spirit is conducted. Native peoples generally believe in a relationship of sacredness between humans and animate and inanimate objects. While some Native forms of ceremony and worship are open to view by outsiders, many other peoples have kept their practices private because they have been repressed in the past or subjected to misappropriation. One form of protection, the Public Law 103-344, American Indian Religious Freedom Act, was passed in 1978 and amended in 1994. Issues of relevance in recent writing have touched on the roles of elders in reviving ceremonies, the problem of misappropriation by “plastic shamans,” and the legality of peyote use in rituals conducted by the Native American Church.

Repatriation (NAGPRA)

The United States Congress passed the Public Law 101-601, Native American Graves and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), on November 16, 1990. This law addressed a long-standing concern of Native Americans: organizations are required to return any human remains and associated grave goods (known as cultural items) and specific ceremonial objects (known as sacred objects) to the Native peoples from which they were taken. In addition, tribes must be consulted directly before any excavations of Indian sites are undertaken. NAGPRA attempts to redress the wholesale removal of Native cultural property that took place in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries by governmental and private institutions and individuals.
