In honor of National Native American Heritage Month, our HeinOnline experts explored the history and culture of Indigenous Peoples of the Americas.
About Indigenous Peoples of the Americas
HeinOnline’s Indigenous Peoples of the Americas: History, Culture & Law was created from a desire to consolidate the wealth of material available on indigenous American life and law, and to share the tremendous influence that indigenous peoples and their cultures have had on the development of the United States of America. With more than 4,000 titles and 2.3 million pages, this library includes an expansive archive of historic materials. Included in the database are hundreds of treaties, treaty-related publications, tribal codes, constitutions, federal case law, government reports, scholarly works, and the entirety of Title 25 (Indians) of the U.S. Code and Code of Federal Regulations.
