Native American & Indigenous Resources

The following resources are culturally legitimate sources of knowledge and information. Most can be used in instruction, though some may not be appropriate for all ages. All of them are useful for professional understanding and context. Please note the primary emphasis on Native voices as a standard. Bear in mind that it is important to both learn and share history as well as to know the current lived experiences of Native Americans and their sovereign nations. The Climate Office welcomes suggestions of additional resources.
