Hi I'm working on my annotated bibliography. I would like a good tip on where to look? Thanks for any tip.
We have a lot of good sources. There were a number of tribes with a presence in Indiana, but two of the main ones were the Miami and the Shawnee, and to a lesser extent, the Illinois.
Using IUCAT, you can find print books and electronic books. Keyword searching for “(Indiana or Miami or Shawnee) and (Indians or Native Americans)” gives a number of results. Some books we have access to include:
The Miami Indians of Indiana : a persistent people, 1654-1994 by Stewart Rafert (E99.M48 R34 1996)
Indians of Montgomery County, Indiana by Bridgie Brill Brelsford (E78.I53 B74 1985)
Handbook of North American Indians by William C. Sturtevant (E77 .H25 Vol. 15)
Ohio's First Peoples by James O'Donnell
Encyclopedia of North American Indians by Frederick Hoxie
Guide to America's Indians : Ceremonials, Reservations, and Museums by Arnold Marquis
(native americans or indians or american indians) and (TI indiana or shawnee or miami)
Gives over two hundred results (I limited to just full text and just peer-reviewed articles). (Click HERE to run this search yourself).
Some examples are:
The Miami prior to the French and Indian War by Emily Blasingham
The seventeenth-century origins of the Shawnee by John Witthoft
Tecumseh's Travels Revisited by John Sugden
The Shawnees and Their Neighbors, 1795-1870 by Timothy Shannon
Let me know if you still aren’t finding what you need; I would be glad to help.
