ASU's Indigenous Culture Week (ICW) seeks to celebrate the Indigenous People of this land and promote the Indigenous voices around the world. The goal of ICW is to bring our community together to educate, celebrate and share ideas, values, and traditions across all four campuses. Due to the extent and history of this week, the Labriola Center student archivists created this library guide to best curate past, present and future ICW related information. In support of this year's ICW themes, we listed resources on Non-US Indigenous identities and Indigenous wellness. All books can be found in the Labriola Collection.
“Indigenous communities, peoples and nations are those which, having a historical continuity with pre-invasion and pre-colonial societies that developed on their territories, consider themselves distinct from other sectors of the societies now prevailing on those territories, or parts of them.....Indigenous peoples are inheritors and practitioners of unique cultures and ways of relating to people and the environment. They have retained social, cultural, economic and political characteristics that are distinct from those of the dominant societies in which they live. Despite their cultural differences, indigenous peoples from around the world share common problems related to the protection of their rights as distinct peoples."
