Books by and about individual writers are on the library's Lower Level. Authors writing in American aboriginal languages can be found at call numbers starting with 897, which includes English translations.

American Indian and First Nations authors who write in English are found at call numbers starting with 81 (American and Canadian authors). This section is huge, however, so it's best to search by author name or the title of the work. (Learn more about finding literature.)

Alternatively, search by "Indians of North America" or a tribe and a specific genre or topic:

  • Indians of North America authors
  • Indians of North America plays
  • Ojibwe folklore
