From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
Billionaire Ted is one of the white people who collects Indian art and culture. He shows up at Grandmother Spirit's funeral with a powwow outfit that he claims belonged to her—but in reality did not.
