Native American Cultural Groups.
Roy, Loriene, Comp.
Part of a larger report on the Four Directions Project, an American Indian technology innovation project, this section includes 13 "pathfinders" to locating information on Native American and other indigenous cultural groups. The pathfinders were designed by students in the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Texas at Austin in response to specific requests by educators in reservation schools. The pathfinders are bibliographic instructional aids that outline methods to locate information on topics of interest to a particular client. Each pathfinder includes an introduction that describes the nature of the topic, scope of the pathfinder, assessment of client needs, and steps taken in identifying and evaluating relevant resources; an annotated bibliography of 15-25 resources, including print reference works, monographs, indexes, journal titles, electronic resources, and organizations; and the pathfinder proper, a guide to locating resources on the topic. The pathfinders are: (1) "Cheyenne Culture: Pathfinder" (Wade E. Osburn); (2) "Lakota Sioux Pathfinder" (Timothy Bullard); (3) "Introduction to the Maori Culture: A Pathfinder" (Candice Weaver); (4) "Introduction to the Navajo Culture: A Pathfinder" (Jeffrey A. Sewell); (5) "Information on Early Navajo Leaders in the 1800s" (Michelle Beattie); (6) "Introduction to the Oneida Culture: People of the Standing Stone. A Pathfinder" (Rex G. Pyle); (7) "Introduction to Penobscot Culture: A Pathfinder" (Christina Holmes); (8) "Introduction to Potawatomi Culture: A Pathfinder" (Britt A. Johnsen); (9) "Introduction to the Culture of Santa Clara Pueblo: A Pathfinder" (Lisa Bier); (10) "An Introduction to Seminole Culture: A Pathfinder" (Arlene Lucio); (11) "History of Animals in the Seminole Culture: A Pathfinder" (Jeffrey A. Sewell); (12) "Seminole Wars (1815-1900): A Pathfinder. For 6th-8th Grade Students and Their Teachers of the Ahfachkee School, Big Cypress Reservation, Clewiston, Florida" (Jennifer M. Payne); and (13) "Twentieth Century History of the Seminole Indians: A Pathfinder" (Michelle L. Gonzales). (SV)
