This guide highlights aspects of Western Libraries' and the affiliated King's, Huron, Brescia and St. Peter's Libraries' collections that represent both the creative output of Indigenous peoples and information about Indigenous peoples. Each page highlights items from our collection and provides information on how to find more.
Please be aware that many of the subject headings you may encounter in the library catalogue (such as "Indians of North America") may reflect dated terminology, concepts, and perceptions of Indigenous peoples.
Western University is currently working to update these terms and begin decolonizing the library catalogue, in consultation with other Canadian institutions, Western's Indigenous scholars, and local communities.
