An Indispensable Research and Discussion Tool

Available in both academic and school versions, this online collection highlights areas ranging from the Inuit of Alaska to the Seminole of Florida, and covers the time period of pre-contact through the colonial era and into the 21st century.

It includes reference content, hundreds of primary source documents, thousands of images, and easy-to-use search and browse features to facilitate research at every level. In addition, it features "Analyze" and "Idea Exchange" sections that pose historic quandaries that invite learners to examine issues from all angles and develop their critical thinking skills.

The American Mosaic: American Indian Experience was designed, developed, and indexed under the guidance of Loriene Roy, the first Native American President of the American Library Association, and a team of American Indian librarians and scholars.
