A history of the United States cannot be complete without discussion of the American Indians, also known as First Nations. To this end The World & I Online offers a unique educational resource: a special collection presenting nearly eighty feature-length essays concerned with Indian culture, history, and contemporary issues.

The collection offers scholarly insight into the lifestyles and beliefs of diverse Indian societies, discusses their place during significant chapters in our history, and considers their circumstances today. Though Indians are often misunderstood and neglected by modern society, their story can inform, empower, and enrich us all.

To allow the reader to focus on specific areas of interest, articles are arranged by both theme and geographic region. It is our hope that this extensive collection will increase students’ sensitivity to Indian concerns and will help illuminate the proud heritage of America’s First Nations.

Compiled and Edited by Stephen Osmond and Kera Bartlett
