Join the Champaign Public Library and the Rare Book & Manuscript Library as we explore the archives of Indigenous groups from the Great Lakes region.

Across the nineteenth-century, Indigenous people extracted and juxtaposed printed and manuscript materials by assembling them within their own albums, scrapbooks, and even printed texts. These textual archives were experiments in translation, combination, and recirculation. They illuminate the many uses to which Indigenous people—both well-known writers and those all but absent from histories of the book and of literature—put textual material, while also providing insight into surprising histories of reading and use across the Great Lakes.
