Emphasis will be placed on the importance of historical and geographic contexts, the major differences between Euro-American and Native American societies, identifying the records of intruders, and developing a research strategy. Major records groups will be defined with a substantial bibliography provided. Some consequential first steps in engaging in any type of Native American research will be enumerated and discussed.
