Native American Material in the Michigan Pioneer and Historical Collections

The compilers from Central Michigan University's Clarke Historical Library created this site which focuses "on those entries that dealt directly with Native Americans, discussed them at any length, or were deemed particularly relevant to scholarship. These were given precedence over entries that marginalize Indians or only mention them in passing." This resource contains citations to particular volumes. It provides a few full text essays.
