    Looking forward to hearing details of this on Beyond The Mesas or even an edited podcast would be great.

    Phil, I think that it would be great if a podcast were available for me to post on Beyond the Mesas. I’ll check with the HCPO and see if they are planning on recording the session. I went to this presentation (or something very similar) at the Native American and Indigenous Studies conference in Tucson and I’ve been meaning to blog about it.
