New section added to "Indians of the Midwest, Past and Present" website
Announcing additions to “Indians of the Midwest, Past and Present” website! A new section, “Are Indians of the Midwest Typical?” compares the Great Lakes region with others, putting regional differences in economic development in historical context. The section focuses on comparing the Great Lakes and upland Plains region, but provides the visitor with other examples.
Conceived and developed by the Newberry's D'Arcy McNickle Center for American Indian and Indigenous Studies, "Indians of the Midwest, Past and Present" is a multimedia educational website that will engage and inform a broad public audience about major issues in American Indian history and culture. Marrying the library's rich collections on Native American history with state-of-the art interactive web capabilities, the site will contribute to the public discourse on contemporary issues involving American Indians— such as tribal sovereignty, hunting and fishing rights, casinos, treaties, museum collections, identity and stereotypes. These issues are discussed in the context of the history and cultures of the tribes in the Great Lakes region.
