Searching the Library

To find resources pertinent to Indigenous theatre, search the Library with any combination and/or variation of the following (non-comprehensive) terms

  • Keyword (all fields): indian, native, aborigin*, "first nations", indigenous
    • Adding the asterisk to the end of your search term, e.g. aborigin* evokes a search function called truncation:
      • The results of this search will be items with words starting with the characters "aborigin" PLUS any other characters; e.g. "aboriginal" or "aborigine"
    • Using quotation marks, e.g. "first nations", tells the search engine to find these two words as a phrase
      • The results of this search will NOT include items where the two words show up individually, e.g. "The first bilingual meeting of the two nations..."


  • Subject: drama OR theatre OR theater
