Native North American or Aboriginal Terms

These terms are an abreviation of the terms from the Pubmed Search Strategies blog found at: http://pubmedsearches.blogspot.com/search/label/north%20american%20indians

The list was initially constructed for use in MEDLINE, but it works in a Scholars Portal social science search, i.e., includes the PsycINFO and ERIC databases amongst others. In the original list, a vast number of individual tribes are included. This is not done here, only the general terms are included for the purpose of searching more general issues on the topic.

On the first line of the search field enter:

American OR Canada* OR "United States" OR Mexican OR Alaskan

and then on the second line enter:

Indian OR Aborigin* OR "first nations" OR indigenous OR tribe OR tribal OR native OR clan
