Admin Alert: Our Platforms Are Now Updated with HTTPS

This past summer, Alexander Street began supporting HTTPS on its platforms (in addition to HTTP) to strengthen security and privacy of your information.

On January 2, 2018, all Alexander Street platforms will permanently transition from HTTP to HTTPS. Existing HTTP links will redirect to HTTPS when the transition occurs. Organizations that use proxies to access Alexander Street platforms will need to update links and certificates to support HTTPS.

This support article shows how to complete changes in proxy servers and provides answers to common questions. Even if you don't use proxies, you'll want to review and convert links to their HTTPS versions. (Note: Access to your Alexander Street content has not been impacted even if you haven't yet made the switch.)

Links will redirect from HTTP to HTTPS for some time to come, but we encourage you to do this important work today if you haven't already.

Table of Contents

1.  INTRODUCTION

1.1 INTRODUCTION

North American Indian Thought and Culture provides sophisticated searching of biographies, autobiographies, oral histories, reference works, manuscripts, and photographs.

For novices who wish to get quick access to key documents, we recommend using the Tables of Contents and the Quick Search tools.

1.2 UNDERSTANDING THE STRUCTURE OF THE DATABASE

There are two basic ways to use the database.

  • Tables of Contents -- Use these to see what's contained in the database. This is the best way to check whether an author, a source, a cultural group, a resource or an historical event is included. To use this tool, simply click on the appropriate table of contents button on the navigation bar.
  • Search Tools -- The "SEARCH" tools let you analyze words and documents that occur within reference texts, as well as identify key people and cultural groups that meet your search criteria. The "SEARCH" tools return reference texts, images or bibliographic citations or both.

1.3 THE NAVIGATION BAR

The Navigation bars let you move around the tools. Click on the mustard area to move to a new tool.  The orange color indicates which tool is active.

The Navigation bars are divided into eleven separate categories, all of which provide quick access to specific documents within the database.

  • All Works - a list of all volumes and web collections in the database.
  • Individuals - a list of every person named as an author, subject, or participating in an historical event.
  • Peoples - a list of all peoples discussed in the database, with all documents, individuals, and historical events pertaining to each group; peoples are organized by linguistic group or geographic area.
  • Places - documents organized by geographic subject, where they are written, and historical events organized by where they took place.
  • Environment - a list of Flora, Fauna, Geophysical Features and Natural Phenomena, with all documents pertaining to each.
  • Subjects - this is a selective list of key subjects and the documents in which you will find them.
  • Documents - this is a complete list of all documents included in the database, organized by type, author, year written, subject, or title.
  • Year - a chronology of key events.
  • Events - major historical events described by documents in the database, organized by date or title.
  • Images - a list of all images contained in the database, with a thumbnail of each image.
  • Audio/Video - a list of documents in audio or video format, organized by title.

The Navigation bars also include a tool to search the works for particular keywords.  This will search all primary works for keyword occurrences.

The orange color indicates which table of contents you are using. The orange color moves as you move from tool to tool. You may click on the mustard parts of the Navigation bar to move to the appropriate tool. (The graphic above is just an illustration; it does not have live links.)

1.4 NOTES ON MARK-UP CONVENTIONS

Materials in the database have been transcribed using original spellings and grammar. In some documents spelling is inconsistent, even within a sentence.

For more information on mark-up conventions, contact the Editor.

2. SEARCHING

2.1 SEARCH OVERVIEW

There are three basic kinds of searching in the database.

  • Quick Search enables you to do keyword searching for occurrences of words or phrases in the database. Results show a list of where in the database the search word appears, in what context, and the number of word occurrences.
  • Full-Text Searching enables you to do keyword searching for occurrences of words or phrases in the full-text documents in the database.
  • Bibliographic Searching allows you to create a set of documents for subsequent full-text searching. Bibliographic searching is when you use descriptive fields to search.
The conventions used in each kind of searching are slightly different as shown below.

Back to Top

2.2 QUICK SEARCH

Quick Search allows you to search across the entire database in a single search. It includes full text, personal records, peoples records, and resource and reference records. Quick Search results offer a list of hits grouped by type; for instance, 36 Occurrences in Resource Texts, 1 Occurrence in Person Names.

Back to Top

2.3 FULL-TEXT SEARCHING

2.3.1 Full-Text Searching

Full-Text Searching is when you search for specific words or phrases that occur in the texts themselves. It is found in the Search Documents and Search Works screens.

Wildcard characters and Boolean (logical) operators, which are modeled on UNIX regular expressions to perform "pattern matching" in full-text searching. Pattern matching allows identification of a large number of words corresponding to a defined pattern. Wildcard characters can be useful, for example, in identifying cognates made obscure by affixes and vowel weakening, inconsistencies due to irregular orthography, and variations on account of word inflection as well as for discovering potential emendations for uncertain readings. The operators (wildcard and Boolean) are listed below.

2.3.2 Wildcard Characters in Full-Text Searching

* (asterisk):
matches any string of characters, anchoring the match at the beginning of a word (e.g., cigar* will match cigar, cigars, cigarette, etc.).

Note: The results page of a text search lists paragraphs containing all the terms found in the database that match your search-term. Clicking on View Line by Line at the top of the results page will display a list of sentences containing all the terms found in the database that match your search-term.

2.3.3 Wildcards and Boolean Operators in Full-Text Searching

  • The OR operator in sentence and paragraph searching retrieves all instances where individual words or phrases appear (e.g., avarice OR greed, holy ghost OR spirit). The example below provides an illustration:

    1. Red Cloud by Charles Alexander Eastman, in Indian Heroes and Great Chieftains (Little, Brown, & Co., Boston, MA, 1918) pp. 1-22 [View full work] [Details and links]

    Our old chiefs thought to show their friendship and good will, when they allowed this dangerous snake in our midst. They promised to protect the wayfarers. "Yet before the ashes of the council fire are cold, the Great Father is building his forts among us. You have heard the sound of the white soldier's ax upon the Little Piney. His presence here is an insult and a threat. It is an insult to the spirits of our ancestors. Are we then to give up their sacred graves to be plowed for corn? Dakotas, I am for war!" In less than a week after this speech, the Sioux advanced upon Fort Phil Kearny, the new sentinel that had just taken her place upon the farthest frontier, guarding the Oregon Trail.

    Nowhere is this desire more manifest than among the thousands of pilgrims who visit annually her birthplace at Auriesville, where the Shrine of Our Lady of Martyrs now marks the former Mission of the Martyrs, as it was called after Jogues and his companions died there, and hallows the soil from which this Lily of the Mohawks sprang. With all who cherish her memory, who use her precious relics, and who above all imitate her virtues, we recommend the custom, dating from her death, of those who went to pray at her tomb, reciting three times the Lord's Prayer, the Angelical Salutation and Glory be to the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. We recommend also the prayer: "O God, who art wonderful in Thy Saints, we beseech Thee, grant the favor we beg through the intercession of Thy Servant Catharine, that she may be exalted in the Church, and that we may be led to imitate her virtues. Through Christ our Lord. Amen."


  • The AND operator in sentence and paragraph searching retrieves all cases where words, phrases, and their variations appear in the same specified context (e.g., church AND state).  The example below provides an illustration:

    "Throughout the early 1900s, the health of First Nations people remained in a state of decline, exacerbated by poor living conditions, poverty, and loss of culture. The federal government primarily left health care to the churches and missionaries, a practice that served to further suppress the traditional healing that had kept First Nations communities healthy for hundreds of years. The changes which led to improvements in health care for First Nations people were largely initiated by the fears expressed from non First Nations communities bordering reserve areas. Secretary Dr. R.E. Wodehouse report


  • The NOT operator in sentence and paragraph searching retrieves instances where one chooses to exclude a word from a search (e.g., church NOT state). The example below provides an illustration:

    13. Sitting Bull by Charles Alexander Eastman, in Indian Heroes and Great Chieftains (Little, Brown, & Co., Boston, MA, 1918) pp. 107-131 [View full work] [Details and links]

    "After traveling about for several years with the famous showman, thus increasing his knowledge of the weaknesses as well as the strength the white man, the deposed and humiliated chief settled down quietly with his people upon the Standing Rock agency in North Dakota, where his immediate band occupied the Grand River district and set to raising cattle and horses. They made good progress; much better, in fact, than that of the "coffee-coolers" or "loafer" Indians, received the missionaries kindly and were soon a church-going people. When the Commissions of 1888 and 1889 came to treat with the Sioux for a further cession of land and a reduction of their reservations, nearly all were opposed to consent on any terms.

     
    14. Entry for Church, Benjamin by Joseph Norman Heard, in Handbook of the American Frontier, Four Centuries of Indian-White Relationships, vol. 2: The Northeastern Woodlands (ScareCrow Press, Metuchen, NJ, 1990) pp. 72-74 [View full work] [Details and links]

    "Afterward he attacked a band of Abnakis on the Saco River, slew two of them, and recovered an English captive. He pursued the hostiles to Cape Elizabeth, where they made a stand. Seven soldiers were killed and twenty-four wounded before he charged the Abnakis and put them to flight. In 1692 Church served with Sir William Phipps in an expedition to rebuild the destroyed fort at Pemaquid. Church led strikes into the Indian country while Phipps repaired the fort. Four years later, Church led another expedition against the Abnakis. When his quarry escaped into the wilderness, he turned on the French settlements in Acadia, burning Beaubassin but failing to capture a fort on the St. John River.


  • Exact word or phrase searching may be performed by simply typing the word, words, phrase, or phrases inside quotation marks (e.g., fields; fields OR sky; green fields; green fields AND blue sky, etc.).

2.3.4 Punctuation and Full-Text Searching

  • Apostrophes and Hyphens: Apostrophes and Hyphens in this database sometimes yield unpredictable results.


  • One must include apostrophes when searching words with apostrophes in them (e.g., only by typing God's will one find "God's"). In this database apostrophes do not act as word separators. strophes do not act as word separators.


  • Hyphens should be replaced by spaces in full-text searches. Replacing hyphens with spaces will produce instances of terms that both include and exclude the hyphenation (e.g., "good bye" yields both "good bye" and "good-bye").

2.4 FIELD SEARCHING

2.4.1 Searching in Specific Fields

When entering search terms in bibliographic fields, you may use the same Boolean operators: uppercase OR, AND, and NOT as used in the full text search field.  They operate the same way.

Back to Top

2.4.2 Punctuation and Spacing in Fielded Searching

When entering terms, punctuation and spacing must match exactly that in the fields. The following marks of punctuation produce a "Nothing found" message: ampersand (&), question mark (?), and double quotes (" ").
