I recently returned from a trip to California where I presented a paper titled “Hopi Marathon Runner Louis Tewanima and the Olympic Games, 1908-1912” at the Native American and Indigenous Studies Association conference in Sacramento. I also heard a great presentation by Hopi educator and scholar Darold H. Joseph from Moencopi titled “Re-Centering Indigeneity: Culturally Responsive Schooling Practices for American Indian and Alaskan Native Youth.” Darold is a Ph.D. candidate in Special Education at the University of Arizona. After the conference ended on May, 22, I traveled to the University of California, Riverside, to give two talks, one of which was titled “Publishing in the Academic World: Developing Dissertations to Books, An Example from Hopi.” Both events were sponsored by the California Center for Native Nations. I spent my remaining time in Riverside conducting research at the Sherman Indian Museum.

Could you make a couple comments about the paper by Darold H. Joseph from Moencopi titled “Re-Centering Indigeneity?
I’m hoping to get my paper accepted for publication, but I would be willing to chat with you over email. email@example.com.
Darold, thanks for extending this offer to Phil. Phil has been a faithful follower of BEYOND THE MESAS, and he is a fellow educator.
Matt, It was great to hear your presentation in Sacramento. Wish we had more time to catch up. I’ll be emailing you to follow up about some of the things we spoke of with curriculum. Thank you again.
Darold, thanks for your comment. I also really enjoyed your presentation. Each of you on the UofA panel did great! Email me and we can chat more about curriculum.
