Indigenous Voices

Links to resources by indigenous authors and communities, focused on the people who inhabited the Susquehanna Valley region and their descendants.


This guide has been created to assist you in finding resources for research in history, anthropology, culture, law, policy, and related fields as it pertains to indigenous communities.   Many of the databases included this guide are free and open to the public, although most resources require a Shippensburg ID for access.

This guide was created by Heather Glasby (Euro-American) with the assistance of James Sterner (Euro-American). The content here is a work in progress that will regularly be added to. If you have suggestions on how to improve this guide or would like to schedule a research consultation in relation to this topic, please contact the library staff or faculty associated with this guide by using the "Schedule Appointment" tool on the left column of this page.

Where possible, the cultural affiliations of authors, editors, publisher, and other contributors have been noted in parentheses to help maintain a focus on the experiences, work, scholarship, and knowledge of the Indigenous community.
