Hi, Kimberly,

I'm so glad someone is finally focusing on real tribes and not just
"Native Americans," as if they're a single culture. As you know, I live
on the White Mountain Apache rez in east central AZ. They used to have
a Web site, and so did the school district, but I don't know if they're
still up and running. I'll check. The real Ft. Apache is here, also,
so they might be a good contact.
