* This student work is flawed according to current and hopefully future understanding of the negative impact of Western colonial scholarship on native peoples and cultures. It was reviewed by several cultural practitioners as it was written, but my/our understanding of such matters, including issues of representation, has evolved and must continue to evolve. I apologize for my part in perpetuating this, and only include mention of this work for the sake of honesty, not as endorsement.
