American Indian Newspapers â€“ uncovering two centuries of important North American Indigenous journalism
American Indian Newspapers, the vital new collection from Adam Matthew, provides digital access to 200 years of North American Indigenous journalism from a range of communities, historic pressings, and contemporary periodicals.
This collection offers a historical retelling of how we as Native Americans saw ourselves and what we recognized as our role in an ever-changing world.

With over 9,000 issues, 173,000 images, and more than 1.1 million articles from 45 significant periodicals â€“ American Indian Newspapers offers researchers a wealth of primary source material, revealing a unique perspective on historical, local and national events.
These tribal newspapers are a rich, untapped resource and we are delighted that they will be available to more researchers through this digital collection.
Erin Fehr, Archivist, Sequoyah National Research Center
The collection has been developed with, and has only been made possible by, the permission and contribution of the newspaper publishers and Tribal Councils concerned. Adam Matthew Digital is extremely grateful for their continuing support of this project. As part of an ongoing relationship and
mutual commitment to enabling and enhancing research opportunities, open access to American Indian Newspapers will be offered to all registered Tribal Colleges and Universities in the United States.
