Indigenous Literature: Home

This guide may assist patrons researching topics in Indigenous Literature. The focus will be on North America: works written by Indigenous authors, as well as materials about the work of these authors.



This LibGuide will identify some of the sources and resources for Indigenous Literature in the Brandon University (BU) Library.

BU Library has material on this topic in several places. One place you may wish to browse is the Indigenous Curriculum Collection ( previously known as 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 want to do a search for materials by Indigenous Authors in the BU Library Collection, have a look at the suggestions in the Indigenous Authors Collection Search Technique tab.

If you are looking for suggestions and resources for Indigenous topics (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, connect to Chat service on the BU Library homepage, or come in to ask for help. We look forward to meeting you.
