    As a westerner myself, this post is near and dear to my heart which is why I stopped to read it in the first place. However, I love how you have spotlighted 10 blogs I’ve never heard of. Thanks for sharing these, I plan on checking them out further. As I’m married to a person from NM, and I graduated from school there, the issues are important. I’m thrilled you posted this. Thanks again!
