List of writers from peoples indigenous to the Americas


List of writers from peoples indigenous to the Americas

This is a list of writers from Indigenous peoples of the Americas.

It includes people who self-identify as Alaskan Native, American Indian, First Nations, Inuit, Métis, Native Hawaiian, and Indigenous Central and South American writers. It has been noted that some writers self-identify in this way without necessarily satisfying tribal membership rules or governmental requirements (e.g. blood quantum). As the list is inclusive rather than exclusive, it contains some writers over whom there has been controversy. It excludes those writers such as Forrest Carter,[1][2] Ward Churchill,[3][4][5] Jamake Highwater,[6][7] and Grey Owl[1][8][9] whose claims to be of Native American descent have been factually disproved through genealogical research.
