HEB titles on Indigenous Peoples
August 9 is Indigenous Day, an important international day of recognition for indigenous people living around the globe. These are communities that are too often marginalized not only in society but also in education and scholarship. There is a lot to be learned from the history of indigenous peoples and disciplines in the humanities are a great way to gain perspective on the multitude of issues surrounding indigenous peoples. Studying these communities and people is also a great entry-way into interdisciplinary humanities scholarship—it is rare that only a historical, anthropological, or sociological perspective will paint a complete picture of indigenous peoples.
Below is a selected list of titles in the HEB collection covering indigenous peoples, ranging from the Americas to Asia, and covering multiple subject areas. If you are interested in an expanded title list or would like to provide a title recommendation, please contact HEB.
