This guide is meant to be a starting point for finding information on the interdisciplinary field of Indigenous Studies. At Okanagan College, Indigenous Studies courses "focus on Indigenous oral histories, kinship, economics, community life, spiritual relationships and ways of knowing. Study offers a holistic understanding of Indigenous peoples, their perspective and politics, as well as their past and present."
I gratefully acknowledge my colleagues at Xwi7xwa Library for sharing their knowledge and providing guidance on my path of Indigenous librarianship.
Please reach out if you have questions or suggestions.
