Meet the latest addition to Falvey’s growing digital news archive: American Indian Newspapers produced by Adam Matthew in collaboration with the Sequoyah National Research Center (University of Arkansas at Little Rock) and the Newberry Library in Chicago. This one-of-a-kind collection covers nearly two hundred years of American Indian history in North America from 1828 to 2016 and offers American Indian perspectives on federal and tribal politics, self-representation, environmental activism, the American Indian Movement, tribal schools and colleges, local news coverage, and many other topics.
In addition to the archival newspaper content, the collection features essays contributed by a group of highly-regarded scholars. Villanova’s own Paul Rosier authored the essay on “Political Activism in American Indian Newspapers.” He also serves on the editorial board.
The Villanova community has access to other American Indian newspapers and magazines through Ethnic NewsWatch although coverage of this resources goes only back to the early 1990s. Articles are reproduced in plain text without images of the original sources.
