Overview of Journal and News Sources
This page contains a selection of reliable sources for keeping up to date on Aboriginal issues in the news, as well as health, legal, education issues with an Aboriginal focus or have some relevance to Aboriginal populations. A selection of blogs with an Aboriginal focus are also included. Hover your mouse over each link to get more information about each information source.

Scholarly journals, e-bulletins, and newsletters on a legal nature are compiled here. Some have an Aboriginal focus while others are about the law in general (with some attention given to Aboriginals).
Education & Social Work
These resources have a more generalist approach, but may still contain relevant information to Aboriginals.
Corrections & Addictions Research
The prison system in Canada and drug addiction resources are covered here in these periodicals. The approach is more generalist, but will touch upon Aboriginal issues.
The following are newspapers or other news organizations that report on Aboriginal issues within Canada with some attention paid to the United States. Most of these sources are made for and by Indigenous peoples. Non-Aboriginal sources are included where their coverage of Aboriginals are particularly strong (e.g. CBC). While general newspapers can be good sources for Aboriginals, they are not included here.
General Aboriginal Periodicals
Aboriginal magazines and a selection of generalized Aboriginal scholarly journals are included here.
Aboriginal Blogs and Social Movements
Blogs provide a vibrant conversation to all topics and communities. Aboriginal peoples are no exception. These blogs and social movements are provocative and shed light on the activist side of Aboriginal communities.
