Welcome to American Indian Societies and Cultures

Welcome to DeWitt Library's subject guide on American Indian societies and cultures. While this guide was prepared with a particular course in mind (His/Soc317x, now His365), anyone interested in this subject should be able to find some help here. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact a reference librarian at DeWitt Library. 

 First Americans


Bandelier National Monument, NM; Ancestral Pueblo center, c. 1200-1400 AD

The Americas were settled before 1492. First Americans were diverse in languages, agriculture, religion, trading relations, building styles, and other ways. Euro-American conquest and settlement added to the complexity of American Indian life.
