What Aboriginal newspapers are available in Canada?

Library and Archives Canada has a wide range of Native and Northern newspapers in its collection. Though most are in print or hardcopy format, there are a few in microfilm format which can be accessed through interlibrary loan (please consult your local library and our ILL website at www.collectionscanada.ca/6/16/index-e.html if you would like to pursue an interlibrary loan). Also, most of these newspapers are in English; however, some have text in various Native languages and syllabics.

We also have a wide range of other kinds of Native periodicals. If you would like to search these yourself on the online interface to our National Union Catalogue (AMICUS Web), it is available at http://amicus.collectionscanada.ca/aaweb/aalogine.htm. One search string would be, "Subject Keyword," typing in "Indians periodicals." This will yield a comprehensive set of results, or if you know of a specific title, simply conduct a "Title Browse" search, typing in the name of the newspaper, magazine or journal.

The following is a selected and updated list of some titles in the LAC collection as per our website "Native Newspapers Currently Received" (at LAC), available at: www.collectionscanada.ca/8/16/r16-207-e.html.
