Molstead Library is honored to support the 9 Point Agreement between the Coeur d’Alene Tribe and North Idaho College.
Point One of this document agrees to "provide resources so that the NIC Molstead Library has the most expansive Native American collection in the region." Our Native American collection of over 2,500 items continues to expand with a focus on the indigenous cultures of the Northwest.
In conjunction with the Coeur d'Alene Tribe, the Sqwi'm Reading Room in Molstead Library showcases photos, tribal artifacts and book displays for NIC students and the public. Come learn and rest in this peaceful place.
Elaine Cubbins, a tribal librarian at Tohono O'odham Community College, created a list of valuable questions to ask yourself as you evaluate Native American information on websites. We've copied some for your convenience below, and you can see the complete list here. Keep her insights in mind as you research American Indian topics from many different sources.
