Archives Library for Native Americans.

November is Native American/Alaskan Heritage Month. Click the blue title above to see attached link on Native Americans. There are some great resouces available at this site, including Genealogy, National Parks, Laws and Treaties, and Tribal Resources. Photos are from the Library of Congress's American Memory Project. There is a digital list of names from rolls from those with Indian blood. Do try out the Geography and Maps and Government Documents in the Reference section. This website is especially important for Oklahoma since a large percentage of our population has a Native American heritage.
