Indians of the Midwest website

The Indians of the Midwest project has drawn on the expertise of a large network of Native and non-Native scholars affiliated with the D’Arcy McNickle Center for American Indian and Indigenous Studies. The Center was founded in 1972 to improve the quality of what is written about American Indian peoples. From that time forward, the McNickle Center’s staff, affiliated research projects, and fellows have played a major role in shaping modern scholarship on American Indian and Indigenous Studies, by sponsoring conferences, seminars, and workshops for scholars and teachers and by administrating several fellowship programs, some specifically for American Indian tribal and Indigenous researchers. The McNickle Center also is home to the Newberry Consortium in American Indian Studies, a group of fifteen graduate-level institutions with significant programs in fields related to the collections.
