Perhaps at some point Tempo could publish an article by an anthropologist discussing the the similarities and differences between the Pueblos and Mesoamerican cultures. There is a long history of contact. They shared some beliefs, but in other ways they were very different. In their rituals Aztecs wielded obsidian blades while Pueblo priests spread corn pollen. Especially in the current political climate, it might be useful to explore our ancient connections to Mexico and how, in many respects, they are a 2000 year-old geographic inevitability that no wall will ever stop.
