Historical Indigenous and Native American Newspapers Online – The Ancestor Hunt

Historical Indigenous and Native American Newspapers Online

For those of you who have some Indigenous or Native American “blood” in your family tree, there are many Indigenous American newspapers that have been published over the last two hundred or so years that may help you find some information and stories about your ancestors.

Listed are only those that are available online. As always, there are tons more available via microfilm and in the original form via libraries and archives.

Please note that some are free and some require a subscription or a login from a university (or local) library. Some are indexed, and some are not. In the Free Collections, you may see some duplicates – this is because the newspaper is provided on multiple online sites, so you may wish to search or browse each of the duplicates.
