This database of Native law cases between 1763 and 1978 was compiled by researchers at the University of Saskatchewan Native Law Centre in the 1980s. Although it only includes cases up to 1978, it has the potential to be a strong resource for examining the legal side of the interactions between the Crown and First Nations and Métis populations that have influenced more contemporary perspectives, attitudes, and situations. The main page of the database does provide a link to another external database that contains information about more recent cases. The case records can be either browsed from a list organized by volume or searched using key words, making the database user friendly for various types of research.
The iPortal is a database that contains both freely accessible and licensed resources (text and visual) connected primarily to the Canadian context of Aboriginal peoples, but also expanding to include a broader North American context as well. The range of resource types is broad, including but not limited to archival documents, photographs, e-books, websites, field notes, and artwork. The database is fully searchable or can be browsed through categories such as Spirituality or Economic Development. A project created in cooperation with many individuals and organizations, this database is a valuable resource for finding various resource types relevant to the Canadian Aboriginal context.
