Yale Indian Papers Project

The Yale Indian Papers Project is a scholarly editing endeavor and social justice initiative that promotes understanding of, and dialogue on, the historical and cultural forces that have shaped New England Indian life for several hundred years.

With a focus on the three essential elements of the learned process—collections, scholars, and publications—the project accomplishes its mission by locating, digitizing, transcribing, and annotating primary source materials by, on, or about New England Indians and publishing them at one readily available online resource, The Native Northeast Portal (http://yipp.yale.edu). The archives provide visual and intellectual access to a fragmented and widely dispersed collection of primary source materials, assembled from partner institutions in the United States and the United Kingdom. This represents a foundational set of documents exploring various aspects of nearly four centuries of native life, including history, religion, politics, law, and culture, as well as issues of community, land, gender, race, identity, migration, sovereignty, and social justice.

The editors of the Yale Indian Papers Project are Paul Grant-Costa and Tobias Glaza. They can be reached at indianpapersproject@yale.edu.
