From the Editors

This year's volume of Totem features papers from undergraduate and graduate authors on a variety of socio-cultural and bioarchaeological topics, ranging from First Nation issues to Maya archaeology.

We would like to thank all of our editors who took time out of their busy school and work schedules to edit this copy of Totem. An additional thanks also goes to Stepahnie Goodfellow who, in addition to editing, lended a hand in production of this volume. Thanks also to all those who submitted papers.

We would also like to thank Andrew Nelson for teaching us how to make page breaks!
