Welcome to the Indigenous Peoples Literature

An educational resource for the advancement of all cultures

Dedicated to the 400 million people on this planet who are neither seen nor heard

Let these words and images be forever a reminder of their existence.


Indigenous Peoples Literature is a non-profit educational resource and collaboration dedicated to the indigenous peoples of the world and to the enrichment it can bring to all people.

It has been regarded by several sources on the web as:

“An impressive archive of cultural material about the indigenous peoples of the world, ranging from literature and music to prayers and history. Viewers will find the complete texts of key documents like the Iroquois constitution and the original Hiawatha. The portrait of Columbus and his followers provides a marked contrast to Columbus Day celebrations.”

This site is a treasure-trove of information for anyone interested in Native American traditions, history, art, and literature. Links to original full-text documents and image files are arranged by tribe as well as by geographical region. Links to sites covering indigenous peoples around the world are included.”

This is an ambitious undertaking which seems to have succeeded grandly, and would seem to be an essential resource for both students and researchers. An exhaustive, well-structured treatment of a topic of great contemporary interest.”

"For a person who cultivates wisdom or true knowledge,
the results are inner peace, satisfaction, patience,
respect for others, freedom from duplicity, compassion,
joyfulness, remembrance of his spiritual identity,
freedom from the fear of death,
freedom from anxiety and depression,
and so on."


Tecumseh, Shawnee

“So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, make beautiful all things in your life.”
