xiv Acknowledgments I also extend my appreciation to UCLA’s Institute of American Cul- tures/American Indian Studies Center for awarding me a postdoctoral research fellowship. Additionally, the Canada-U.S. Fulbright Program offered me the opportunity to study in residence at the University of Toronto. I am grateful to Angela Riley and Carole Goldberg, UCLA School of Law, for their rewarding seminars on federal Indian law. Fred Clark of the Office of Tribal Relations, U.S. Forest Service, shared his extensive knowl- edge of the government’s special trust responsibility to Native Americans, which proved invaluable during my time as a volunteer. Andrew Sarris, Columbia University Richard Macksey, Johns Hopkins University Thomas Cripps, Morgan State University and William K. Everson, New York University—your expansive knowledge in film and literature and your unwavering support for many years will be truly missed. Finally, I am especially grateful to the following tribal communities who patiently assisted me with questions of culture, heritage, and enrollment. Alexander First Nation Caddo Nation Cherokee Nation Chickasaw Cultural Center Chitimacha Tribe of Louisiana Comanche Nation Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation Confederated Tribes of the Yakama Nation Fort Peck Assiniboine & Sioux Tribes Gila River Indian Community Lake Manitoba First Nation Lower Brule Sioux Tribe McMurray Métis Muckleshoot Indian Tribe Nanticoke Indian Tribe Native Village of Koyuk Navajo Nation Oglala Lakota Nation Onondaga Nation Poundmaker Cree Nation Puyallup Tribe San Carlos Apache Santee Sioux Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate Six Nations of the Grand River Seminole Nation of Oklahoma Stockbridge-Munsee Community Tsleil-Waututh Nation White Mountain Apache Tribe Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska
