The Papers of the Society of American Indians is a record of the organization, personalities, and accomplishments of the nation's first modern Pan-Indian reform group. One of only a handful of document collections generated by Indians themselves, it offers scholars an unusual perspective on the status and concerns of Native Americans in the early twentieth-century. This collection comprises about 5,600 documents drawn from forty-five repositories across the country. Included are society correspondence, bylaws, position papers, publications, financial records, conference programs, claims, petitions, and press clippings. The guide includes a history of the SAI and its papers, roll contents, and an index.
