Names of Nations
The Library strives to respect the First Nations-preferred names and spellings of nations. X̱wi7x̱wa is developing an authority list of First Nations Names.
For example: First Nations – education – british columbia – bibliography
X̱wi7x̱wa uses a British Columbia variant of the Xwi7xwa classification system, developed by Kahnawake librarian, Brian Deer, for the National Indian Brotherhood in the 1970s. The National Indian Brotherhood is now the Assembly of First Nations.
