General Sources

Academic Info - Anthropology
Don't let the ads and sponsored links on this page fool you -- there are links to good anthropology sites here. Still, it is a bit of a mixed bag. The SOSIG site ("Ethnography and Anthropology" below) might be a better place to start.

American Anthropological Association
Includes a few full-text articles from Anthropology News, and links to selected anthropology-related web sites.
A topical table of contents by subject, which contain recommended readings and annotated listings of web sites.  As well it has a search engine that queries reviewed web sites with anthropological content. The search function is likely to be more frustrating than the table of contents.

Arctic Studies Center
From the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History.  "Provides a well-balanced look at the Arctic peoples, their cultures and environments."  C&RL News, 9/99.

Ethnographic Studies Resources
Directory of links to web sites. Particularly strong in ethnomusicology and folklore, otherwise gives more links to other directory sites rather than links to content.

Intute: Anthropology (formerly SOSIG)
A well organized and annotated listing of web sites grouped by type (articles, news, resource guides, etc.). From Intute, a UK-based site that provides links to resources of high quality for students, academics, researchers and practitioners in the Social Sciences.

Voice of the Shuttle: Anthropology
Part of the well-known site at University of California, Santa Barbara. A briefly annotated list of web sites; mostly directory sites or sites with general information.

Aboriginal Peoples

Aboriginal Canada Portal
Links to information and web sites on a broad range of topics. A good starting point for researching First Nations issues. Created by a partnership of national Aboriginal organizations and federal government departments.

Alaska Native History and Cultures
Browse by topic or by region. From the Alaska's Digital Archives project initiated by the Rasmuson Library at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, the Consortium Library at the University of Alaska Anchorage, and the Alaska State Library in Juneau.

Native Web
Links to sites by and about native or Indigenous nations, peoples and organizations around the world.  It has an internal search engine.
