Cowlitz Indian Tribe
None of this would have been possible for me were it not for the love and support of my wife, Tania, and our two sons, Leonardo (3 y/o) and Raphael (1 y/o). I dedicate this to them because they are the center of my world. Throughout my academic career, and the pandemic, I couldn't have asked for a more incredible wife, partner, friend, and colleague than Tania. Leo and Rapha were my inspiration, motivation, and perpetual positivity engine - too cute and amazing to ever let me stay in a funk for very long. I'd also like to thank my mother, Jane, my father, Roger, my step-father, Neil, as well as Tania's parents, Felipe and Xochitl, for their tireless support and encouragement. A big náxʷɬqʷulʼas (thank you) also to the Cowlitz Indian Tribe and all of my extended kin for everything.
