Holdings of Catholic-related records about Native Americans include “Relation de la Discouverte de la Mer du Sud” (microfilm) 1673 by Louis Joliet, re: Mississippi River exploration by Joliet and Père Jacques Marquette, S.J. and their encounters with Illinois and other Indians. Other holdings are unknown.      

 

Unless noted otherwise, the repository named above holds (or held) the records described and not the Marquette University Archives. However, Marquette’s holdings, e.g. Bureau of Catholic Indian Missions Records, include related records about these Native and Catholic groups and places.
