EID Committee to present program on “Locating Reliable Sources for Indigenous Research Papers and Projects” with Dana Reijerkerk

In commemoration of Native American Heritage Month, the Committee on Equity, Inclusion, and Diversity at the University Libraries is excited to present a workshop on “Locating Reliable Sources for Indigenous Research Papers and Projects” with our very own librarian Dana Reijerkerk!

When: Thursday, November 19, 11am

Location: Online

This presentation will cover research methods for searching and finding primary sources about Indigenous peoples situated in what is now called the United States. Attendees will come away with a list of government websites, data set repositories, and databases to search for and find research-related information about Indigenous peoples.

About Dana: Dana Reijerkerk is the Knowledge Management and Digital Assets Librarian at the Stony Brook University Libraries. She holds a B.A. in American Indian Studies from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke and a Master of Science in Information from the University of Michigan. Her Master’s research focused on Indigenous community/tribal archives, and her current research explores Indigenous issues in galleries, libraries, archives, and museums.

Please register for this event via Zoom. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with information about joining the meeting.

We also hope to see you at our program on Understanding Intergenerational Trauma for Indigenous Communities on November 16.
