New Database! Indigenous Peoples of North America Part 2

Indigenous Peoples of North America Part 2: The Indian Rights Association, 1882-1986 provides a near complete record of the efforts of the first organization to address Native American interests and rights. This collection includes incoming and outgoing correspondence; organizational records; printed material (including early pamphlets and publications both by the Indian Rights Association and other American Indian and Indian-related organizations); Indian Rights Association annual reports; draft legislation; administrative files, the papers of Indian Rights Association founder Herbert Welsh, photographs (often from Western field trips), materials from the Council on Indian Affairs, and manuscripts and research notes regarding social and cultural Indian traditions.

The Library purchased part 1 of this collection back in 2017 and Gale recently released part 2. The access points for this collection (GLOCAT, Databases List) remain the same and so does the platform. When a user searches the database or GLOCAT, they will retrieve results from both parts of the collection.
