or a book...
from the time period you're studying
Secondary sources are...

First Nation
indigenous peoples
First People

these are labels used to group articles or books on the same basic topic together
the key is to figure out what they are
use a keyword search to find a book, then check out the subject headings
use the subject headings on the side of the Ebsco databases
use the thesaurus in a database
subject headings are also helpful when a word has 2 very different meanings
not ticket scalping
