"I was hoping for more information about hot issues in protecting tribal cultural and natural resources, as opposed to an overview of government agencies and agency law."

"They all to often spoke in acronyms that I did not understand. I was not familiar with the statutory or regulatory material they were discussing. They should have explained the basics a lot better. Their tag team approach also made the program hard to follow. They each should have picked topics and discussed them individually rather than doing part and handing off to the other participant. The program also seemed to lack focus. They were all over the place."
