From the Editors

This year's volume of Totem features papers from undergraduates and graduates alike, on a variety of socio-cultural and bioarchaeological topics. We would like to thank all those who submitted papers and the many editors who took time out of their busy school and work schedules to edit this copy of Totem.

We would like to thank Dr. Lisa Hodgetts for all of her help with Totem this year. Special thanks also to Fraser McCrossan and Lisa Paulaharju for the formatting and computer help.
