    Hi Marsha, 

    Hope you're well. I will be working that afternoon, and we probably won't have someone who can cover for me. Please excuse my absence in advance, in case no one can take over for me during that time.

    Thanks a lot, and have an awesome weekend, Louis.

    I am working remotely, but available to assist you with your research needs.

    We should take a moment to acknowledge the land on which UC Davis physically sits. For thousands of years, this land has been the home of Patwin people. Today, there are three federally recognized Patwin tribes: Cachil DeHe Band of Wintun Indians of the Colusa Indian Community, Kletsel Dehe Wintun Nation, and Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation. Indigenous histories and perspectives inform my work.
