NOTES

1. The Seeds of Colonialism
1.
This is based on detailed archaeological surveys of twelve Siouan burial mound complexes constructed in the Late Woodland Period (ca. AD 800-AD 1607). Hantman and his colleagues note several commonalties at all of these, including size, peculiar methods of construction, and physiographic location.

One language is common to them all though they differ in dialects" (Alvord and Bidgood, 1912: p. 141).
4.
