Indigenous Studies in the Americas: Highlights from our Collection: Indigenous Works from Latin America

This is a guide about indigenous studies in the Americas, with resources from UNC and beyond.


The following works are highlights from our catalog that are critical indigenous studies, focusing on literature, legal and environmental rights, and more. However, works completed by indigenous authors and artists are located across all of our library collections, both in indigenous and colonial languages. Additionally, not all indigenous work is written; for example, writing via textiles is also an important cultural practice for some indigenous cultures. Our Chumbe weavings are a great example of this work. Therefore, this should be seen as a small exhibit of a much larger set of works, both in critical indigenous studies and indigenous art and literature. To find specific works, use the subject headings found in the "Research" tab, or search for an author or artist via the UNC Catalog.
