Surprising to hear.
I wonder if Eubanks read them in the original Mikasuki and Creek.
So she knows all about the history of how they helped slaves escape bondage and the ensuing anger of Southern slavers led to the Trail of Tears and whatnot?

What a dufus - its’ the study of the “semenal works of Western Civilization”,
I’ve been seeing this kind of homophone substitution more and more often lately. Is it a speech-to-text thing or autocorrect? Someone fired all the editors?
