Sun Tracks could not exist outside the supportive atmosphere of the University of Arizona. We appreciate the help of the American Indian student organization, the Amerind Club, and the encouragement we get from the American Indian Studies Program and the Department of English. We are especially grateful to Vine Deloria, Jr. and Dean Paul Rosenblatt for helping us to continue.

We would like to thank a few of the many individuals who contributed time and energy to get this issue together: Robert Hale for drawing the maps, Elly Evers for advice on the manuscripts, Leslie Silko for encouragement and the title, Dennis Carr for designing the issue and helping with decisions all along the way, and Barbara Grygutis for constant support.

Sun Tracks is an American Indian literary series sponsored by the American Indian Studies Program and the Department of English, University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona. All correspondence should be sent to: Sun Tracks, Department of English, Modern Languages Building #67, University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona 85721.

The original edition of this special issue was made possible by grants from the Coordinating Council of Literary Magazines and the National Endowment for the Arts.
