The Los Alamos Daily Post visited San Ildefonso Pueblo Gov. James R. Mountain, a 1990 graduate of Los Alamos High School, Thursday at his office.

Mountain was elected in December to serve a three year term and took office Jan. 2. He spoke Thursday about his initiative to promote the culture and history of his pueblo and his desire to be a good regional partner with his neighbors throughout Northern New Mexico.

The San Ildefonso Pueblo comprises approximately 28,000 acres and has approximately 860 registered tribal members, he said, adding that 17 pueblo students are currently attending college.

Mountain will visit the Rotary Club of Los Alamos noon meeting Aug. 11 at the Los Alamos Golf Course Community Building.
