Aboriginal Literature: Home

This guide may assist patrons researching topics in Aboriginal Literature - materials written by North American Aboriginal, Metis, and Inuit authors, as well as materials about the work of these authors.


This LibGuide will identify some of the sources and resources for Aboriginal Literature in the Brandon University (BU) Library. For the purposes of this LibGuide, the term Aboriginal includes First Nations, Metis, and Inuit authors and literatures.

BU Library has material on this topic in several places. One place you may wish to browse is the Aboriginal Curriculum Initiatives Collection, located on the First Floor of the Main Library. It includes children's literature as well as other categories (history, politics, and so on). The Collection is added to regularly - so watch it grow!

If you are looking for suggestions and resources for Aboriginal topics in general (culture, education, history, housing, treaties, women, youth, and so on), please have a look at the BU Indigenous Resources or the BU Metis Resources LibGuides. You also may wish to consult the LibGuide for English for an overview of English Literature resources. For a list of all BU LibGuides, see below.

If you would like assistance with your research - whether you are just beginning or require advanced help, please contact us in the Library. You can make a Research Appointment, email us directly, phone us, or come in to ask for help. We look forward to meeting you.
