I mostly post my space-related items here, but my job is that of an archaeologist. I'm so lucky to have a long-term (20+ years now!) archaeological project in such a beautiful place as the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge. At tonight's talk I was encouraged to sort of speak widely and freely about our experiences out there, looking into the world of the Chinookan people who lived here for some thousands of years, and it was a great night out. I was honored to be greeted by Sam Robinson, Chairman of the Chinook Nation, at the beginning of the talk, who invited me to come on a native canoe journey in the Summer. Link to my presentation, as a PDF, can be found under "Talks" (scroll down -- see left side of the page) at my academia site.
