iPortal logo

The Indigenous Studies Portal (iPortal) is a database of full-text electronic resources such as books, articles, theses and documents, as well as digitized materials such as photographs, archival resources, maps, etc. focusing primarily on First Nations and Aboriginal peoples of Canada with a secondary focus on North American materials and beyond.

This initiative began in 2005 at the University of Saskatchewan as a resource for faculty, students, researchers, and members of the community and currently links to nearly 50,000 items. Anyone can use the freely available materials in the iPortal but some resources are licensed and may only be available from your own library.

There are several different ways to search and/or browse the iPortal:
