- This work is available for free download. I choose not to publish it because then it would bring income to the publishing house and not the participants in the Conquest Dance who most deserve it. Also, though I have invested nearly $50,000 of my own salary in this project, I ask for no monetary compensation, as this too would be injurious to participants.
- Except where otherwise noted, all photographs are by the author and included with written permission from the dance team autores.
- Entire project is available for free download in English. Part III on contemporary performance is also available in Spanish, translated by Mónica Daniela Pérez Montelongo. See Spanish page.
