Meeting Myron (Strong Willow) Gonzales

Eugene and Myron in Los Alamos on 11/28/11
It is hard to imagine a more meaningful conversation!

At long last  I met with Myron Gonzales to discuss LADDOF's "Story Tree" project. Last August 18, San Ildefonso Gov. Perry Martinez assigned Gonzales in his role as the tribal council's representative for cultural affairs to evaluate the project. Frustrations, PC problems and unexpected obstacles delayed our meeting until Monday, November 28. But it was as if our meeting had been arranged by influences far beyond our control to give us ultimately an unhurried opportunity to meet and hear each other in a "deep democracy" setting. The meeting lasted almost three hours.
