* Just as a note, the inclusion of books on this list does not necessarily mean that the information is completely correct or should be taken literally, some of the books, especially the colonial-era European reports, may be used for historical purposes, such as matching up historical events or as a springboard for research into a purported cultural practice and may need closer scrutiny.
