Recent Acquisitions in the Archives in Recognition of National Indigenous Peoples Day

Updated: Jun 27

In honour of National Indigenous Peoples Day, our Librarian/Reference Archivist, Kayla Cazes

has highlighted recent publications that showcase the ever-growing breadth of Indigenous

works in the Archives Special Collections Library at the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies.

The Archives and Special Collections Library consists of over 20,000 items including books,

pamphlets, newspapers, audiovisuals, and maps. Ranging from the early 1800s to modern day,

the Indigenous section of the library continues to be a robust place for researchers to find

information on a variety of topics.

Many of the books listed here were generously purchased through Calgary Foundation with grant

funding acquired by Manager, Indigenous Relationships and Programs, Dawn Saunders Dahl.

We thank her for her tireless efforts in pursuing funding and providing guidance.

The Archives and Special Collections is currently open to the public Tuesday to Friday, 1 to 5

p.m. If you are interested in an in-depth research appointment, we encourage you to book an

appointment with us at
