At the Sunday night tour of the Heard Museum for American Indian Art & History (heard.org), we had the chance to greet long-known colleagues and meet new ones. The museum exhibits examples of Navajo and Hopi art, including pottery, beading and the handwoven US flag in the picture.
EPA’s OUST had many staff on hand from the DC area. It also seemed that representatives attended from all 10 regions and nearly every state and territory sent multiple compliance inspectors. I’m not sure if someone from each of the 556 federally recognized tribes was there, but the room was full. Everyone was ready to talk about tanks, but the art and history of the museum wisely prevailed. Good SW food, too!
