Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce Social Justice Quotation

As part of a Minority Serving Institution (MSI), the library is committed to acknowledging, celebrating, and highlighting the rich history of our Indigenous communities. This guide serves as a starting point for you to learn and discover Native American-centered topics and will hopefully inspire social justice for this community. Included in this guide you will find resources, videos, websites, and so much more. Take a moment to learn and grow. Knowledge is power. How will you use it? 

We echo the sentiments of President Kelly Miller in her Campus Announcement sent on June 1, 2020:

"As a University, we remain steadfast in our commitment to diversity, equality, and inclusion. We provide educational experiences that include the development of engaged citizens. We graduate students who are critical thinkers and problem solvers. We prepare leaders that strive to create a more equitable and just society. These qualities and this type of leadership are crucial to the future of our country. Still, there is more we can do, and there is more we will do."

We want this to be a growing, changing guide and are open to suggestions and resource submissions! To submit resources to add (such as books, organizations, online resources), please contact us at 

This guide was put together through a collaboration between the Mary and Jeff Bell Library and Fall 2022's ENGL 3341 students (Nicole Bucciarelli, Hannah Lay, Samara Neal, and Trisha Guico).
