Overview

Researchers and scholars interested in Native American studies know that the records of the Indian perspective on many important events once existed almost exclusively in mimeographed news-sheets, offset tabloids, and, occasionally, full-fledged newspapers. These were ephemeral productions, often from short-lived presses and circulated among remote constituencies where they are "read to death" as they are passed from hand to hand. Of some issues there seems to be no trace. The collections covered in this series represent the fruits of a long effort to preserve and disseminate these documents in microform. While most originate with Indian groups, some are missionary society or federal publications, both U.S. and Canadian. Where possible, gaps have been filled from other collections, including those of the Museum of the American Indian, the Smithsonian Institution, and the Newberry Library in Chicago.
