Featured Books: Celebrating Indigenous People

Joy Harjo poet laureat portrait

US poet laureate Joy Harjo

October 14, 2019 is Vermont’s first official Indigenous Peoples' Day. Recent legislation makes Vermont one of the first states to legally rename Columbus Day.

For the remainder of 2019, the Howe Library lobby will feature rotating works from its circulating book collection about the myriad histories, cultures, and experiences of Native Americans. A special selection of books promotes the work of US poet laureate Joy Harjo and other Native American poets.

Feel free to check any of these books out at the Howe Library Circulation Desk.

You can find more resources using the CATQuest, the UVM Libraries search engine. It’s important to note that many terms have been used to describe indigenous people, in a long evolution of Library of Congress subject headings, and these often reflect the language of dominant culture. A research guide from Michigan State University provides good tips for searching and browsing to find books in this context.
