Articles concerning Native American topics can be found in databases both specific to Native Americans  such as Bibliography of Native North Americans and subject specific databases. For instance if your topic concerned Native Americans and substance abuse, you would also search databases that covered substance abuse topics (listed under Social Work database subject page). Add the phrase "native american" to your keywords.  For example, if your topic was  Native Americans and substance abuse, you could search using the keywords "Native Americans" and  substance abuse.
