Focus on the following:

these through this link: http://www.nytimes.com/ref/membercenter/nytarchive.html
• To find information from websites, you must adhere to the following guidelines:
• You must use only websites ending in “.org” or “.edu” or “.gov unless you receive special
permission from your instructor to use a “com” website (e.g., nytimes.com, etc.). Special
permission will be granted only if the website comes directly from (is published by) the tribe
you are studying or if you are using a site similar to LegendsofAmerica.com.
• Federal Register of Recognized Tribes
• National Congress of American Indians Search by tribe and then get their official website
• It is important that you do not use “.com” sites for a project of this nature as it is very difficult
to verify the source of the information you are reading.
• You must not use Wikipedia for information about your tribe. You can use Wikipedia or
Wikimedia for images or maps related to your tribe.
• Below are links to some websites that can help get you started:
Legends of America: Native American Legends (tribes):
Bureau of Indian Affairs: http://www.bia.gov/
University of Washington Library:
