Indigenous Studies

A research guide for finding high-quality resources about Indigenous topics

Search for Indigenous Organizations

Indigenous organizations and associations sometimes produce their own research like reports, fact sheets, articles, newsletters, and videos. These resources may be publicly available.

Look at the Associations and Websites section of this guide for a list of possible starting points.

Search WorldCat Discovery using an association as the author:

Or when you find a reputable website, look for a section called publications/research/reports/documents, and browse that organization's resources:

Reverse Citation Search to find Indigenous Authors

Use Google Scholar to do a citation search to find Indigenous authors. Indigenous scholars often cite Indigenous research. For example, Indigenous scholars across many disciplines cite the book Decolonizing Methodologies by Linda Tuhiwai Smith. 

Google Scholar allows you to do a reverse citation search, which allows you to find resources that cite a specified publication.

1. Open Google Scholar and find the title you want to search, then click "cited by".

2. Select "Search within citing articles" and try performing a keyword search to narrow your results.

3. From those results, look for author self-identification or biographies which identify authors as Indigenous within articles.
