NativeWiki is a free, open-to-the-public library of information about indigenous nations and peoples (past and present) of the world. It features major sections on Nations and Peoples, Documents and Materials, Geographic Regions and a Picture Gallery of selected images. Started in April, 2007, it currently boasts 1,181 content pages, 1,108 media files, and 869 registered contributors.

A word on Wiki's:

Wiki's, such as Wikipedia and Nativewiki, are online open-content collaborative projects, that is, a voluntary association of individuals and groups who are developing a common resource of knowledge on specific topics. The structure of the project allows anyone with an Internet connection and a World Wide Web browser to alter its content. Please be advised that nothing found on a Wiki site has necessarily been reviewed by professionals with the expertise required to provide you with complete, accurate or reliable information.

However, that is not to say that you will not find valuable and accurate information ion a Wiki; much of the time you will. However, the owners and operators of these Wiki's cannot (and will not) guarantee the validity of the information found there. The content of any given page may recently have been changed, vandalized or altered by someone whose opinion does not correspond with the state of knowledge within the Wiki.

As with any open online web source it is ALWAYS a good idea to check on the reliability of the information being presented.

Note: This is a free online resource
