This might be the most comprehensive website surrounding the lives of Native Americans.  It provides a plethora of information about various Native American tribes, products, and topics (from pow wows to medicine).  It is run by the American Indian Heritage Foundation and offers support to over 500 Native American tribes nationwide.

Continuing with my interest in Native Americans in the media, this website offers its audience a chance to find films and actors that are Native American.

This site gives a thorough look at the various aspects of Native American history. The reader can choose from a list of different takes of their history as a whole.  It provides an economic, social, cultural, media, and retrospective history of the Native American people.

The goal of the Bureau of Indian Affairs is to “… enhance the quality of life, to promote economic opportunity, and to carry out the responsibility to protect and improve the trust assets of American Indians, Indian tribes, and Alaska Natives.” Learn more and explore the website by clicking the link above!

If you are interested in Native American art, this is the website for you.  It features a number of Native American artists and their work that you have an option of buying.  It offers a unique perspective of art that is highly symbolic and spiritual.

Campfire stories with George Catlin is the basis for this website.  It offers paintings, historical documents, and commentary from modern experts so the reader is able to explore the two cultures, both in Catlin’s time and present day.  He was an artist that travelled through Native lands during the 1830s and documented his experiences.
