Two types of titles appear in the following list. Some are titles for which no copies have been located to date. However, frequent references to them and reprints of pieces from them in other periodicals and newspapers indicate that they qualify as American Indian or Alaska Native newspapers and periodicals. No doubt, copies of some exist and, perhaps, will surface. Others are titles for which copies have been located but were unavailable for profile. Some were located too late for examination for this volume, and others, for one reason or another, were inaccessible.
Following each title is a brief statement of facts relating to it, a list of sources in which references to it appear, and a list of location sources for those for which extant copies are known.
Cross references are to the main title list.

The Bear was published at the Fort Lewis Indian School, Colorado. In November, 1900, John R. Hughes, blacksmith at the school, wrote, "Our paper here is failed lately" and cited poor press equipment as the cause. He added, "I suppose Mr. Sickells is the editor." The Bear apparently revived and appeared again in the spring of 1901.
