In response to multiple inquiries regarding the list of research materials associated with the list of articles on the Boy Scouts and the associated factions, Indian Country Today has compiled the list of website links, documents and more for a reference to any readers or researchers that might be interested in conducting research of their own.

Some research was left out due to privacy of youth and/or personal information we acquired. There are also overlaps in research as many topics and links involve more than one faction.

Below you will find the list of articles in the series as well as the list of website links accessed in the past year to create the stories.
