Python Data structure index Start at 1 instead of 0?

I have a weird question: I have this list of 64 numbers that will never change:

(2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 46, 48, 50, 52, 54, 56, 58, 60, 62, 64, 66, 68, 70, 72, 74, 76, 78, 80, 82, 84, 86, 88, 90, 92, 94, 96, 98, 100, 102, 104, 106, 108, 110, 112, 114, 116, 118, 120, 122, 124, 126, 128)


I need a data structure in Python that will allow me to accsess these numbers using a 1-64 index as opposed to the standard 0-63. Is this possible? Would the best way to accomplish this be to build a dictionary?

Answer

Just insert a 0 at the beginning of the structure:

(0, 2, 4, 6, 8, ...)
